Rossignol Group takes proactive steps around COVID-19 outbreaks
March 17, 2020
In response to COVID-19 and concern for the health and well-being of our employees as well as the larger community, Rossignol Group North America announced proactive steps and precautions for staff over the weekend, effective immediately.
Beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020, all Rossignol Group North America employees with the ability to telecommute have been instructed to work from home until further notice. Distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada have been authorized to continue on-site operations with additional “safe zone” precautions and entry permitted to Rossignol Group employees only. Additional education and resources have been deployed to assist our employees during this unprecedented and challenging time.
These measures are the latest in a comprehensive response from Rossignol Group’s management team, including the cancellation of events, closing of all U.S. retail locations, elimination of business travel, and self-quarantine of any employees who may have recently traveled outside of the country.
We believe corporate social responsibility during a public health crisis means making decisions proactively and out of an abundance of caution. In light of the current situation, the best evidence and advice from global health officials indicates that adopting social distancing and short-term isolation practices can help to mitigate major risks to the health of our communities.
Our management team would like to thank our customers and business partners for their patience during this time as we do everything we can to minimize disruption to our business while protecting our employees. We’d also like to thank our employees for their flexibility, with special recognition going to the hardworking staff in our distribution center, human resource, and IT teams for rising to meet these new challenges.
President, Rossignol Group North America
