“We implemented safety protocols for our office and in the field, well before shelter in place went into effect,” said Gregg Cantor, President of Murray Lampert.
Making sure the office and jobsites are safe was the company’s number one priority. At the same time, with new software, Murray Lampert enabled staff to work remotely to maintain productivity and improve the client experience.
“I personally called our trade partners to inform them that we were following all protocols and being recognized as an essential business, so we could all continue to work,” says Cantor. “I then contacted all of our clients to make sure that they were comfortable with us working on their projects. All of Murray Lampert’s approved and were pleased.
