COVID-19 update

We are in the process of dealing with our response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Like a number of organisations, Effective Governance has recently made a decision to have some of its staff working from home. Effective Governance staff regularly work remotely in providing governance services to our clients. In managing our response to COVID-19 you can be assured we will be providing our full suite of leading practice services to all of our clients, as normal. Our infrastructure and systems fully support our entire team working in such a way.

As you may be aware, a large amount of our board and governance review work is routinely conducted online and for client meetings or group presentations we are now using video conferencing facilities such as Zoom, in addition to teleconferencing.  So, despite a change of location, we are all still fully available and are continuing to work with clients, albeit in slightly different ways.

Some of our clients have asked us to help them identify specific governance activities that can be conducted online, and as a result, we have been undertaking more governance documentation reviews, policy and charter development, director skills assessments and board maturity assessments to ensure that their systems, processes and succession planning reflect leading practice.

We appreciate the challenging circumstances that our entire nation and world is experiencing and wish to re-affirm our support as you lead your organisations through these unprecedented times. We actively partner with our in-house corporate legal expertise, HopgoodGanim Lawyers, to supply cohesive delivery of corporate legal advice to support your corporate governance framework, which may be particularly beneficial during this period of tumultuous change.
