COVID-19 and Our Commitment to You
At HR Answers, we believe in the power of relationships, and we have for 35 years. This is true now more than ever! Our clients are extremely important to us! Being a resource for you as you grapple with the impact of Coronavirus is also very important to us. We believe we can be helpful to you in a variety of ways outlined below.
How will this impact your support experience? It shouldn’t at all. The only request we have is that of a little patience and grace. We are averaging a call or email inquiry every 8 minutes. Our team remains available to assist you while working from their home or at our office in Tigard.
Please continue to use the same means to contact us – We have updated our Contact Us page to help you. With regard to COVID-19, we will continue to provide updates as our governing parties and medical professionals provide us more information and/or guidance.
Our projects and day-to-day work are continuing as normal. We will maintain our usual high-touch service with regular communication with our clients and partners. For any meetings that do not require a physical presence, we will look to shift most of those meetings online or over the phone.
We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as government officials instruct. We have additional contingency plans should further measures become necessary. We are confident in our ability to continue to deliver services to our clients.
Again, THANK YOU. If you do have questions, comments, or concerns please let us know.
