April 1, 2020 – COVID-19: Continuity and Strength Moving Forward

With each passing day we hope for encouraging news about the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to spread and alter our daily lives in multiple ways, both at home and at work. In this unprecedented environment, for which we have no roadmap, Ground Effects LTD/LLC remains committed to the health and safety of our staff, customers, suppliers and the entire community.

In compliance with orders issued by the local, Provincial/State, and Federal governments Ground Effects will continue operating based on the most recently released publications. We have streamlined our resources to include critical operations personnel who will continue working in our facilities to supply critical customer projects and components. We are continuing to work with all levels of government to ensure that we can provide essential products and services to our customers in a timely manner.

As an organization, Ground Effects is taking all the necessary precautions to ensure that we are managing our operations without compromising the wellbeing of our employees and customers. Of the remaining critical staff, many have adopted a home office environment. This will help to minimize the risk associated with the COVID-19 virus and to assist the community in limiting the burden on our health care system. Our account management team is working remotely and remains available to our customers during this period.

For those staff that are working in our facilities we are continuing to follow the guidance of the local health unit:

  • Staff that are working in our buildings are practicing physical distancing in the workplace
  • Sanitization protocols are implemented to ensure the safety of all working spaces
  • All entrances are secure, and visitors are required to complete a short questionnaire before entering our premises
  • All meetings & communications are being managed by conference call
  • We are providing daily health updates to our employees

In fast-moving and unpredictable situations, Ground Effects is committed to supporting the industry as we unite, stabilize resources, and innovate to help overcome this challenge. We will continue to provide updates to our policies and operating status as we come to understand any future changes in legislation and recommendations from our government. Together, we will overcome these challenges and are committed to moving forward responsibly.

COVID-19 Tips

Here are some tips and resources to help support the mental health and well-being of your people.
Introduction to working remotely (Webinar)

While advances in technology offer greater flexibility around when, where, and how you can work, this increased availability also produces unique issues. This 15-minute webinar will address some of the challenges and best practices for working in a remote team to create an effective and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Using technology to connect when you work from home

As we redefine “going to work” as working in the comfort of our own homes, this can be a challenge for some, but it is possible, with the right technology, to thrive in this new atmosphere. In this article, we explore our best tips for using technology to work from home.
Boosting team morale when remote working due to COVID-19

You and your employees may find the transition from coming into a workspace every day to working from home difficult. Staying connected while showing compassion are great ways to boost team morale during this uncertain time.
Managing family dynamics

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. Day-to-day routines have changed and learning to navigate new norms are prevailing. In some cases, this means seeing the people in your household more than you are accustomed to, and perhaps seeing less of other family and friends.
Maintaining your mental well-being if you are a health care worker

If you are a medical professional or caregiver, you may be enduring stress beyond that of others and struggling to maintain your mental well-being while doing your job. It has never been more important for you to do what you can to take care of your mental well-being, while doing your best to help people impacted by the pandemic.
