A MESSAGE FOR OUR ASSOCIATESON COVID-19
Dear Valued Associates,
Our associates are the heart of our business; we lean on each other in times of uncertainty and I am proud of how we have come together over the last several weeks. I am aware that the ongoing coronavirus situation is evolving quickly and want you all to know that your leadership team is committed to doing everything possible to safeguard your health, wellbeing — and that of your families — while continuing to serve our clients and communities.
We know it is essential right now to keep our associates informed with timely and relevant communications. In an effort to make sure we are all accessing information from credible sources, please read on for helpful resources.
In the event you are unable to remain in contact with your direct managers, we are offering this site as a way to capture important information that is relevant to you regarding your role with Compass Group Canada. Please continue to check back for updates.
I’m never more proud of our people than when we show our collaborative and caring spirit as we navigate challenging situations. I am confident that our outstanding team will continue to rally together and support one another.
