GS – We are here to help, every step of the way

Mar 20, 2020

It has been a bizarre week for us all. The impact of Coronavirus has hit us all very hard, both professionally and personally, and will undoubtedly change the way we live both now and for some time in the future. The impact is being felt far and wide, but we are all in this together and will come through the other side, hopefully for the better.

We’ve watched in shock at the monumental amounts of cash being drawn from the economy, seeing unimaginable numbers quoted by government to be used to help.

A day doesn’t go by without worry and concern, it matters to each end every one of us. For those that own and/or manage businesses, the cashflow impact and the detrimental affect it is having on our employee’s wellbeing is heart-breaking especially when the situation is out of our control.

We’ve been told that no Island businesses will go under, that’s some statement and quite a promise with a daily changing situation. All we can do, as business owners, is pull together and support each other in these troubling times.

The real positive effect of this is how we are realising how important every business is to society. We are seeing communities pulling together and, as individuals, we are looking out for each other far more than ever before. Perhaps, when this is all over, we will look back and see this as a turning point in our busy world, a time when we realised how fragile each and everyone of us really is when the unexpected happens, but also a wakeup call as to what really is important to all of us.

We all know the impact of this sudden and unexpected crisis has been impossible to make contingencies for and will never have even been considered in any business continuity planning and with that in mind we cannot reinforce enough that…….

the team here at GS are on hand to help and support as best we can. We may well have had to restrict face to face meetings in the offices (for obvious reasons!) but, that doesn’t stop you getting in touch and we will do our best to offer help, support and guidance through these troubled times.

Stay safe, take care and look after those loved ones.

The team at GS.
