A message from GlobalLogic President and CEO
I hope you and your family, and all your employees are safe and healthy during this unprecedented crisis. Our sincere sympathies, prayers and positive thoughts go out to all those who have been afflicted with the virus.
At GlobalLogic we are doing everything we can to assure our employees’ health and safety, and to minimize impact to client projects. At this time, we have had no reported Coronavirus infections at any of our facilities, and no client projects have been effected. Over the past week, we transitioned over 85% of our employees to work from home (WFH), and we continue to follow all local health regulations to keep our team safe. For the latest status of our response efforts, please visit the GlobalLogic Coronavirus Prevention and Response web page.
We understand that almost all of our client’s businesses are under pressure; some critical and some moderate. You have always treated us as a partner and not a vendor, and in that spirit we stand with you during these challenging times and will do everything we can to support you in your plans. Our promise is that we will do our best in not missing a beat as we transition to working from home / remotely. If you are experiencing increasing financial pressure, then please reach out to your account manager, our Chief Operating Officer (COO) Nitesh Banga (email@example.com), or feel free to contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’re ready to work with you, and to find creative ways to keep our projects on track. Our aim is to support you in any way we can.
As always, we are thankful for your business and partnership. We look forward to working with you as we navigate these challenging times together.
