The past few days have dramatically changed the way people live and work, testing the leadership of governments and companies as the world comes to grips with the unprecedented and evolving nature of the COVID-19 health crisis. In real-time, companies and industries across the globe are learning to adjust to a new normal and operate seamlessly in a world of social distancing and closing borders.
In times like these, preparedness and the ability to activate with agility and accuracy is key. Ceridian has established a COVID-19 Response Team, instituted a work from home policy across North America, and moved key conferences to virtual formats, all without disrupting the normal course of business. However, our experience tells us that the coming days and weeks will bring with it more uncertainty and anxiety.
With this in mind, Ceridian continues to follow the guidelines of the World Health Organization and are well positioned to ensure the continued safety and success of our employees and customers for several reasons, including:
- Our business continuity team has proven experience navigating emergency events. This team is fully activated and is supporting our key business operations across the globe.
- Our workforce and key functions are geographically dispersed across facilities, ensuring continuous support should there be a concentration of COVID-19 cases in a particular region.
- Our sophisticated tools and technologies enable our employees to work remotely, without disruption, to fully serve the needs of our customers. We have had a long-standing work from home policy that makes our current transition seamless.
- Ceridian is and has been a virtual working culture for many years with virtual teams committed to delivering successful implementations, customer services, and operational support. Our customer demand and go-live activity continues to be strong.
Lastly, we would like to offer our customers and others our experience to aid in COVID-19 planning and preparedness efforts. Should you be interested in learning more about the expertise of our business continuity team, please contact your Ceridian representative. We are all in this together, and we are here to help.
Chairman and CEO, Ceridian
