Our number one priority is the safety of our employees, clients and the broader community. Given the current unpredictable nature of the spread of COVID-19, and in an abundance of caution, Lenox Executive Search has implemented the following practices immediately:
  • We have increased our overnight cleaning activities to ensure frequently touched areas are being disinfected and sanitized.
  • We have implemented social distancing techniques to minimize the typical face-to-face- contact by utilizing teleconference calls and flexible workspaces.  We have suspended non-essential business travel for our employees and have asked that inter-company meetings be conducted via teleconference. In addition, we kindly ask all of our customers to help us maintain a handshake-free zone at all Lenox Executive Search locations.
  • We have asked employers who feel ill to stay home.
  • We have convened a team of senior leaders who meet daily to discuss the situation and stand ready to take additional steps, if necessary.
  • We have measures in place to ensure our operations can effectively continue so that we can provide our clients uninterrupted service.  Lenox Executive Search already had robust and detailed business continuity plans in place.
