Morson Covid-19 Support Hub

Our response to COVID-19

A message from Ged Mason OBE, Morson Group CEO

In this COVID-19 support hub we will provide updates and helpful links. We now, more than ever, need to stand in partnership, prioritise the safety of ourselves, our colleagues and our families and keep lines of communication open. We have specific pages for employers, workers and information on the #KeepBritainWorking campaign, which aims to protect jobs and preserve livelihoods, for which we are a strategic partner.

As a business rooted in family values, the health and safety of our people, job security and the continuous provision of our operations and suite of services remain our utmost priorities. In these unprecedented times, all of us at Morson are committed to ensuring our clients, candidates, contractors, supply chain and employees feel supported. 

Following advice from the UK Government, we are contingency planning and have moved as many people as possible to remote working, to help us ensure the safety of our employees whilst maintaining the service levels that you would expect from us.

We recognise that not all teams can work from home and I want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those employees and contractors who are on site providing operational continuity.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the potential impact of COVID-19 on your workforce or operations, please contact us
