Adams Direct and Media Services has been guided by a core value of, “doing the right thing, the right way.” Never has it been more important to live by this principle as we respond to this unprecedented threat. ADAMS is closely monitoring the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) at a global and local level. We are committed to doing the right thing for our employees, our clients, and our partners during this time of uncertainty.
Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by this virus and we are grateful for the healthcare workers who are attending to the sick and working tirelessly to contain the spread. Under extremely adverse circumstances we are seeing the best in people as we unite to fight this global pandemic. The health, well-being, and safety of our employees, clients, and partners remain our highest priority.
We are continuously monitoring the impact of coronavirus and adhere to the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organizations (WHO). For our part, we will continue to take the necessary and required steps to ensure our work environment and employees are safe and healthy. It is important to note that both the WHO and the CDC have advised that there is minimal risk of transmission of the virus from the handling of mail and packages.
ADAMS’ offices remain open for business, but we are taking measures to reduce unnecessary exposure and population density. Our Business Continuity (BC) plans are designed to address various threats and vulnerabilities, including a response to the pandemic and high absenteeism. Strategies for responding to a pandemic are embedded within our BC plan and emergency response methodology.
We have detailed plans in place to protect our personnel and limit the spread of disease. All employees who can work from home are now doing so and meetings are being held virtually. We have suspended all client, partner, and non-essential site visits to our facilities. A core team has been established to ensure the decisions we make are based on the most current information and with a focus on the well-being of each of our employees and our clients.
Despite enormous challenges the Adams team is committed to seamlessly providing the service and support you depend on from us. We are taking the necessary steps to minimize disruption and handle potential interferences, adapting to a new way of doing business.
Thank-You and please stay safe!
