A Message from our CEO
Reflections on COVID-19
As we all continue to experience this crisis and its many uncertainties, I hope that you and your family, friends, and colleagues are safe and healthy. Like many of you, I have been focusing on navigating through this crisis with the goals of keeping people safe and healthy, and doing what we can to help prevent further spread of the virus. In addition, I have been focused on ensuring that Sterling can continue to operate smoothly and deliver for our clients.
Over the last month, most of our staff moved to working from home, just as many of you have. This was a huge lift for our teams to execute successfully, and I am grateful for how quickly we adapted. I am very proud of our team for handling the personal and business challenges that this presents, especially as schools in many countries have also closed. There is a ”we’re in this together” feeling here among our team, and also between our company and the many other organizations that also have had to endure this transition. We truly are in this together.
Throughout this crisis, we’ve been speaking with our clients on a daily basis. While some of our clients are understandably in hiring freezes, others can’t hire fast enough. As people, our clients have been dealing with this crisis, working to keep themselves and their families and friends safe and healthy. As functioning organizations, it’s been a scramble to find people and hire them quickly enough to meet healthcare and market demands, for example. In these instances, to help, we’ve already taken on drug and occupational health screenings for several of our clients who are redeploying their employee health resources to focus on patients. And we are working with each of our clients, looking at their unique situations, and assessing how we can help.
I’d like to let you know that we’re here for you. We’re all going through this together. As you’re working to keep yourselves, your colleagues, and your loved ones safe, I know that you’re also working to meet the demands of this new situation in which we find ourselves. We are here to help you, even it just means giving us a call to talk.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please stay healthy and safe.
