Supporting Our People And Clients Through COVID-19

These truly are unprecedented times for brands, retailers and indeed the wider population. With the situation evolving daily, we like all business are constantly evaluating and planning how we can best support our people and our clients through the challenges faced with COVID-19.

Following government advice and regular internal discussion, we have taken a range of measures to ensure we can operate “business as usual”, keeping our Blue Square people safe, whilst also being available to support, now more than ever our clients.

Supporting our people.

We have ensured that where possible our people are taking every measure necessary to stay healthy at this time, be it the strictest standards of office and personal hygiene, following distancing best practice, working from home where possible, greatly increasing our usage of "Virtual Conferencing" applications and providing regular daily updates to our entire Blue Square family.

A special thank you to Heather and Emma for setting up our " Wellness Hub" - a place online for our people to stay connected, take virtual tea breaks together and share tips and advice on staying healthy, positive & productive during this challenging time.

"We care deeply about retail, its customers and everyone who works in this industry."
Supporting our clients.

For over 10 years we have developed a wide range of creative retail marketing solutions. In recent weeks a number of them are proving more vital than ever to help our clients reach and support their customers in innovative ways.

Data and Insight –Understanding the evolving impact on retail is vital to our clients. Through our expertise in data analysis we are able to provide insight on trading trends, resource allocation and future forecasting, at a time where smart decision making is crucial.

Connected Store – Our out of the box solution enables online customers to have a video call with a brand representative and receive expert advice and product demonstration, before continuing their purchasing online.

  • This solution has been used in live retail stores, behind the scenes “Connected Stores” and could be used easily by staff currently working in a store currently closed to the general public.
  • With flexible locations and minimal equipment requirements, “Connected Stores” can also be set up in either purpose built or remote locations, allowing staff working from home to continue to serve customers.
  • The proven ROI means it could be a viable way to keep supporting staff and customers now that the majority of retail stores are asked to remain closed.

Strategy Support - Brands are having to think on their feet at the moment, in many cases under a lot of pressure. We can support you if you need help in the way of retail expertise, innovation and insight.

MediaBoost – If your brand communications need to connect with your staff through more than conventional intranets, emails and messaging platforms, this solution can help your most important messages and people to find each other on social media.

Field Teams & Retail Experts - The staffing burden on certain sectors of the retail sector is increasing rapidly. We have an award-winning team of seasonal and part time retail staff who could be redeployed to assist you and your customers.

We care deeply about retail, its customers and everyone who works in this industry. If we can support you or your operation in anyway reach out to us at hello@bluesquare.uk.com
