CEO Message on COVID-19
The emerging conditions driven by the COVID-19 pandemic have affected all facets of the global economy, and no industry appears immune. Even if it goes without saying, I want to assure you Geosyntec remains open to continue to serve our clients.
We are prepared with well-established remote work capabilities and best practices that enable continued efficient operations for those employees working away from offices, and we are reachable through all normal channels. Additionally, we have proactively bolstered our technology infrastructure to maintain a high level of client service and achieve our clients’ goals. In addition to our senior leadership team who are meeting regularly to address emerging COVID-19 challenges, we have established an expert task force specifically to support project managers with personnel in the field serving critical roles on our clients’ projects. We will continue to be responsive to our clients’ evolving project and operational needs.
We are keenly focused on safeguarding the health and safety of our community. Since news of this outbreak, we have been consulting with health experts and closely monitoring available information to help ensure we are doing what we can to keep our employees, their families, and communities safe. As part of our overall response, we have enacted non-essential travel restrictions, social distancing measures (for all operations in the office, when travelling, and in the field), and have taken steps to ensure our workplaces are healthy environments.
At this time, a number of our physical office locations have been closed where government shelter-in-place orders have required such an action, but staff from these offices remain actively working from home. At our remaining locations, we are encouraging staff to work from home where they can do so effectively. Where staff need to access offices, access is controlled and conducted with adherence to social distancing and exposure limitations.
As you are aware, there are still many unknowns with COVID-19. We will vigilantly monitor evolving information from trusted health agencies and health experts so we can continue to react quickly and responsibly in the best interest of our employees, communities, and clients.
We hope you and your families will stay safe and healthy throughout this crisis. As always, the Geosyntec team is here to support you, and our commitment to you remains unchanged – to help you succeed through delivering exceptional service and best value solutions. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.
