With the current outbreak and spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to implement a Work From Home policy for many of our First National team members beginning today, Monday, March 16th
. We recognize the toll and impact this pandemic is having on our brokers, our internal team and the community that surrounds us and we feel it is our duty to do everything in our power to help stop the spread.
We want you to know that we have taken several measures to ensure there is no disruption to your business during this stressful time. We have the technology infrastructure and tools in place to make it easy for our employees to effectively support you from anywhere. As such, we do not anticipate any material delays or issues.
Our priority right now is to ensure the health and safety for all – our team, our brokers and our community.
Availability of your First National team:
First National will remain fully operational while this Work From Home policy is in place. Our teams will be available by email and by phone. We will continue to provide our industry leading service. We are discouraging our teams from face-to-face meetings, all non-essential travel has been cancelled, and we are asking that any meetings scheduled to take place in person be rescheduled or done through phone calls or teleconferencing instead.
The situation we all find ourselves in with COVID-19 is unprecedented and the news surrounding it is changing rapidly. We continue to seek guidance and protocols from local public health agencies in all provinces and we are also tracking the response from our various levels of government.
We are thankful for your support and wish you and your families health and safety in the days ahead.
Please do not hesitate to reach out directly if you have any questions or concerns.
President and Chief Operating Officer
