As we face the difficult challenge of responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19), which the World Health Organization declared a pandemic, our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities, and governments around the world who are on the front line working to contain this coronavirus.
Safety remains our number one priority for our project team members, stakeholders and their families. Proactive and continuous communication is paramount during this turbulent time. GLA has been utilizing video conferencing and remote facilitation on many of our projects in order to optimize resources and reduce travel time to keep projects moving and on track. We are committed to further enhance this tool and make it available to all our projects.
Existing Subscription Projects
Monthly online video conferencing is already included as part of your Partnering services package. Your GLA Facilitator will continue to schedule video conferencing sessions with key projects principals.
Individual Sessions Projects
GLA will extend monthly video conferencing services to all our individual sessions clients in order to keep lines of communication open, and work actively on dispute prevention, without the need for in-person gatherings. Participants can access the session from their computers, laptops and mobile devices. Your GLA Facilitator will reach out to you and schedule video conferencing sessions with key projects principals.
New Projects Kickoff Sessions
Now more than ever, working together through challenging situations and creating efficient, highly effective teams is key to success in the field. By optimizing remote video conferencing we are able to deliver quality Kickoff sessions for new projects. The session content will remain the same and will achieve the same desired project goals. The advantage of video conferencing is the ability to continue face to face communication virtually.
Utilizing the technology and tools at our disposal is what GLA has been preparing for the last few years. Our industry is built on finding solutions to engineering challenges and enhancing our quality of life. Facing the Coronavirus challenge is no different. We will need Partnering more than ever to overcome this challenge, while keeping our workers and families safe.
Thank you for your continuous trust in GLA and our dedicated team of professionals. Feel free to reach me or any of our team members should you have any questions or if we can be of more assistance.
