In these unprecedented times, where the Coronavirus is impacting all aspects of our lives, looking out for the safety of our colleagues, our clients, our supplier partners and the mobile employees we work with is of paramount importance.
As health concerns grow, Weichert Workforce Mobility and our on-the-ground partners are continuing to follow the guidance and safety standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and local regulating bodies for all face-to-face interactions.
Knowing that our service partners (van lines, DSPs, appraisers, inspectors and real estate professionals) interact directly with relocating employees and their families, we expect them to have a heightened sense of awareness of the risks involved with the Coronavirus, and we have also issued supplier safety precautions to guide their customer interactions. Our primary goal is to protect everyone involved and reduce the risks of transmission.
To ensure that our colleagues remain well-equipped to serve our customers, we are working vigilantly to maintain a healthy working environment. In accordance with the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines, we, like most major employers, have enacted our emergency response plan and are promoting social distancing through alternative work policies, including remote work. Being a company that has long-embraced remote working arrangements, we have been able to seamlessly adapt and remain fully operational and available to our customers in this challenging time.
While the impact of Coronavirus on talent mobility is significant and evolving by the day, we have created an information resource for our corporate relocation professionals, where we provide best practices, news updates and insight to help them challenges brought on by the virus. You can access this page here.
In the meantime, we remain confident that working together, we can ensure the best outcomes, even in the most difficult times.
