COVID-19 announcement

We are all in this together. In the wake of the news surrounding COVID-19 and its spread across the globe, the health and safety of our customers, partners, and employees is our top priority.

We know you’ve likely been inundated with communications like this one. Even so, we wanted to share some of the steps Hemsley Fraser is taking to support customers and partners and maintain business continuity.


We’re going virtual and online for now

Hemsley Fraser is moving training programme delivery to a virtual and online blended experience format exclusively for the next period - to meet customer needs and to keep everyone safe.

I’d highlight three key things that we think will particularly help right now:

  • We can assist you in keeping teams better connected as you adapt to working in a virtual world. Our Learning as a Service package will provide an immediate communication channel that can be leveraged to engage employees virtually, as well as a vehicle to drive productivity through new working models.
  • We are rapidly expanding our offering of virtual, expert-led training, including options to accredit your team to deliver virtually. Continued professional development can be a productive and welcome diversion for employees that find themselves home-working. On-demand learning topics include both professional development and well-being topics, as may be especially important during these times. 
  • For clients that typically leverage one of our public training centres, these programmes now will be delivered as virtual sessions, with online learning resources and virtual coaching blended experiences. Our Grosvenor Place training suite is closed temporarily.


How we’re keeping Hemsley Fraser employees safe

Our leadership team has executed a crisis response plan for working and managing teams remotely. As such, we have instructed our employees to work from home for the time being and will monitor the situation and adjust the time frame as needed.

As per government recommendations, we have also suspended all non-essential company travel, and postponed events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to resuming face-to-face connections when it is safe to do so.


We’re here to help

We will keep you updated and communicate any new information on our website and social media channels as the situation continues to unfold.

Our support team is standing by to answer your questions and address any logistical concerns.

We’ll continue watching, listening and learning day-by-day and will keep you posted as things evolve. Please stay safe and healthy and thank you for being a Hemsley Fraser customer.
