I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
These are very surreal and uncertain times. So we want to give some comfort to our clients, friends and colleagues about how SOOP Strategies is navigating COVID-19 to protect our team and our clients, and continue to bring the best of our abilities, services and care to you.
1) All SOOP team members are working from home offices. This is a seamless transition for us as we are used to practicing telecommuting.
2) We are moving all in-person meetings with each other and with our Clients to virtual platforms. Zoom has been our conference application of choice. We invite and encourage the use of video for our conference calls. Most everyone is on lock-down and isolation can creep up on a person and affect our mental states. Comfy clothes, yoga pants, and pajamas are welcome attire. As are welcome interruptions from children, dogs, cats, and other home comforts. 🙂
3) We promise to keep our communication channels open with you, to keep you updated on how the SOOP team is doing and how we will continue to support each other so that we can seamlessly continue to support you. Our core team is further supported by wonderfully talented and passionate sustainability advisors and specialists. Our internal operations are structured so that SOOP team members can seamlessly crossover from one project to another if and when we need to cover for each other. But we all hope for the best and we strengthen that hope with super-frequent hand-washing, zero face-touching, social distancing, self isolation, and quarantine.
4) We are proudly working with Covergalls to produce and distribute cloth masks to businesses who wish to help keep their employees safe while ensuring the medical grade masks (i.e. N95) are reserved for our front-line workers. This new mission for SOOP Strategies brings us an immense amount of pride and purpose as we actively join the fight against COVID-19. More information to come very soon.
Take care and stay safe,
Sabrina and the SOOP Team
