GPS’ COVID-19 Response.
Together, we are navigating our way through these dynamic, unprecedented times caused by the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. With the spread of COVID-19 and the rapidly evolving circumstances that result from it, GPS and its companies are continually adapting to protect our global workforce and to support our clients and consultants.
Our top priority has always been to ensure the health and safety of our employees, clients, and consultants. While that is our main concern, ensuring business continuity remains critical. During these ever-changing times, we continue to strive to meet the needs of our clients.
Health and Safety of All Employees
The health and safety of our employees is of the utmost importance. We are actively following health, safety, and travel guidelines established by Health Canada, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other local and regional health authorities.
To minimize the community spread of COVID-19, all our offices have moved to remote operations. We are also working with clients to identify contract roles that can work remotely, or in cases in which work cannot be performed at a distance, supporting clients in instituting proper health and safety precautions to protect workers.
We are confident in our capability to maintain essential business functions in serving both our contractors and clients – including payroll, benefits, and other key support functions – as well as the same level of service our customers have come to expect from us.
We are in close contact with each client and business partner to understand the impact of COVID-19 on their daily operations and find solutions to support them.
We thank you for your partnership and trust during these difficult times. If you have any additional questions about GPS’ plan to protect our workforce and ensure business continuity, please reach out to your local GPS representative.
