Coronavirus (COVID19)

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, The Best Connection remains resolute and totally focused on sourcing and supplying the essential temporary staff our clients rely on to undertake their crucial operations.  

As a provider of Flexible Workforce Solutions, we are able to achieve this by leveraging the reach and capability our extensive UK branch network gives us and the local knowledge we have accumulated serving business communities for nearly three decades.

Coronavirus update from Chief Executive

During this challenging period, we have two main objectives:

We are committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of all our employees, clients and temporary workers and follow current advice from the World Health Organisation and the UK Government on best practice.

We are committed to supporting you with the excellent service you would expect from us - come what may.

Whilst our work practices have necessarily been modified, we are open for business and we will continue to do everything we can to support your needs.

The Government is explicit about the importance of maintaining social distancing as a method for infection control but also strongly emphasises the need for businesses to continue operating as best they can within the guidelines to support the fight against COVID-19.  

Business sectors, including manufacturing and industry are being urged to answer the call to action by keeping essential supplies moving.  Retail has also been highlighted as a sector that is crucial in boosting the morale of the British people through the provision of goods procured online and through shops and stores operating services such as click and collect.  The Government acknowledges the need for an efficient supply chain to underpin this sector.

The Best Connection is totally behind these efforts and ready to provide the staffing requirements these companies and suppliers need to keep their businesses operational through this challenging period and thereafter.

In the attached letters, The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP, Secretary of State, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, endorses the pivotal role manufacturing, industry and retail play in providing essential services and products and emphasises how retail plays a vital part in connecting those in self-isolation with the outside world by ensuring a broad range of products are made available.

In his latest communication he also emphasises the critical nature of keeping the energy supply chain moving, “. . . keeping fuel flowing, the lights on, our buildings heated and cooled.”  This is key to getting the country back on its feet as quickly as possible as restrictions are lifted.
