Happenings at Gross Mendelsohn

June 4, 2020

We’re months into the COVID-19 pandemic and I wanted to update you on some happenings at Gross Mendelsohn. As things start to re-open, what is Gross Mendelsohn doing to provide our employees a safe workplace, while safely providing excellent service to our clients?

As I communicated in my March 23 update, Gross Mendelsohn, as an accounting firm, was deemed an essential business. While some partners and employees have continued to safely work in our office, many others have worked from home by choice. I’m proud of all of our employees for shifting their work environment and routines in such a seamless way.

Now, with restrictions in Maryland and Virginia easing, we’re putting a transition plan into place that will see more employees return to the office in a staggered and carefully thought-out fashion.

Here are the highlights of how we will be working.

Our Clients

Drop off and pick up of documents

As part of our firm’s social distancing protocol, we are not allowing visitors in the office at this time. However, if you need to exchange documents with us, we are offering two options: a bin in the lobby and curbside drop off/pick up. This applies to both our Baltimore and Fairfax offices.

To arrange curbside drop off or pick up, contact us and let us know when you’ll come by. When you arrive at the office, call, email or text your point of contact to let them know you’re waiting, then someone will meet you curbside.

We look forward to welcoming clients and other visitors in the office down the road, and will let you know when our visitor policy changes.

Meetings with Gross Mendelsohn’s staff

All of us at the firm have been in touch with clients via online meeting tools like Microsoft Teams. While we miss face-to-face time with our clients, virtual meetings have worked remarkably well.

You can continue to reach us in the same ways to which you are accustomed, whether it’s email, phone, text or virtual meeting. We’re here to help business owners and taxpayers handle the many financial questions and challenges they are experiencing as a result of this crisis.

Working at clients’ offices

In an effort to keep clients and employees safe and healthy, we will do as much client work as possible remotely. If the nature of the work at hand requires us to be at a client’s office, we get in touch to make arrangements. We’ve instructed our employees to wear masks while working both in Gross Mendelsohn’s offices and clients’ offices. We may also ask you about your organization’s safety protocols before coming onsite.

Actions We’re Taking In Our Offices

Most importantly, we are emphasizing and strictly enforcing a stay-at-home-if-sick policy. Employees are also required to wear masks in the office. In addition, we are reconfiguring some workspaces to accommodate social distancing best practices. We’ve also suspended all nonessential business travel. Any employee who uses airline travel is required to self-quarantine, working from home, for 14 days upon their return. Regular office cleaning and disinfecting is being kicked up a notch during the pandemic.

Resources for Clients

You can find dozens of resources here on our website. Those resources include videos and articles about the Paycheck Protection Program, including how to apply for PPP loan forgiveness, financial relief programs for businesses and families, the CARES Act, deadline extensions and more.

You can also check out our “What Now?” video series here on how business owners can keep moving forward in the era of COVID-19. 

This continues to be a challenging time for all of us. If you have something on your mind, I encourage you to talk with our team. We’re in this together, and we’re here to help.
