We maintain open communication with our team members through various channels, including email, intranet, newsletters, town halls, and executive videos and messaging.

COVID-19 response & workplace safety

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolved, the health and well-being of our team members remained our top priority. Throughout 2022, we maintained safety protocols to help protect employees and customers.


The protocols included broad-based work from home options for most employees, travel restrictions, social distancing, daily health screenings, safety incident reporting, and deep cleaning practices at all our facilities, including our customer-facing locations. All protocols comply with applicable government regulations and guidance.


We continued to offer all employee training virtually and provide remote workers with appropriate equipment and resources as needed. In addition, employees were provided with paid time off to obtain COVID-19 vaccinations and paid COVID-19 sick time.
