Michael Pemberton, CEO
April 2020 Covid-19 Statement from our CEO
Like every business at the moment BEC has and is being significantly impacted by the current global pandemic. Our thoughts are with our team, their families and loved ones, our tenants, customers and our local communities.
We are following the updated advice from the UK government and taking all necessary actions and precautions to minimise the spread of the virus.
What we are doing
Michael and the Senior Leadership Team are determined that the whole BEC team continue to feel like a team – this is a time when we really do need to stand shoulder to shoulder ‘virtually’. We have three top priorities in these challenging times – our people, our business and our communities. This is where the focus of our actions has been since the pandemic took hold and this will continue until we have together come through this current challenge.
The health and safety of our employees and their families are our first priority. We are doing everything we can as a business to ensure that our people remain safe, healthy and stay positive.
Looking after our customers and the safety and security of our property portfolio is our second priority. Our business remains operational and financially stable through the crisis and continues to deliver a high quality service to our tenants and customers.
BEC exists to support the local communities in Allerdale and Copeland. It is our purpose as a business. At this time of great community need we are proud to say that our people are rising to the challenge. We are supporting our local communities through the crisis to minimise the impact of the virus and help build and retain stronger community spirit.
