COVID-19: WeCo is Running From Our Virtual Offices
WeCo has moved all staff and client functions to our already established virtual offices, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a company that was founded on the virtual office concept, WeCo clients will notice no change or dissruption in services due to this action. We thank our clients for their flexibility and support, as we adjusted our mode of operations to entirely virtual venues in early March.
WeCo’s Business Contingency Plan
Because we are a company entirely staff by individuals living with disabilities, who are deemed “high risk” for serious ramifications from viruses like COVID-19, WeCo has been prepared for an event such as this.
The following tools are part of our normal business structure. They help us maintain normal business operations through a health, and other type of crisis.
- A robust, flexible Contagious Illness Policy, based upon recommendations by the Centers for Disaease Control and World Health Organization.
- Movement of our staff meetings, client trainings and public events to webinar and phone formats. (Put into effect March 9, 2020)
- Closure of our physical offices in Minnesota and California, and movement of our Staff Team into our well-established virtual office. (Put into effect, March 12, 2020)
If you have questions about WeCo’s Business Contingency Plan during the COVID-19 pandemic, or any other crisis, please contact WeCo Director of Operations, Kelli Ryan at: email@example.com or 855-849-5050 x709
