This is how The Reference handles the COVID-19 situation

Every industry and company has been impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic that’s holding the world in its grip. At The Reference, we’ve also taken some precautions to ensure the health and safety of our experts, partners and clients. Here you will find all the information you need for the coming weeks.

Can I visit The Reference offices?


In short: no, our offices aren’t open to visitors. Our experts will be working from home to help slow the spread of the virus and all physical meetings have been cancelled, postponed or changed into Microsoft Teams meetings. Fortunately, The Reference already supports remote work with a good IT infrastructure to help us work efficiently from home, using cloud-based tools and a stable VPN-connection.


Will these measures impact our cooperation with The Reference?


Because The Reference is an organization that has supported remote working in the past, we’re well equipped to continue work as usual. In other words: the current measures we take to prevent the spread of the Corona virus will not impact the speed or deliverability of the projects we’re working on.


Can I meet with my contacts at The Reference?

Yes, but …

The precautions we take aren’t limited to internal meetings. Wherever possible, we try to replace physical external meetings with conference calls and online gatherings. We’ve also cancelled all avoidable travel plans and will not attend any physical events for the foreseeable future, including our own Fast Forward event on the 2nd of April.


When will everything go back to normal again?

April 3rd 2020

As it currently stands, we’ll keep these measures in effect until April 3rd 2020. We keep monitoring the situation and might adjust this date when needed.



You’re always free to reach out to your personal contact within The Reference, or send us a message via our contact form.
