Our immediate actions include:

  • Suspension of all business related travel through at least May 2020

  • Suspended outside visitors for tours and non-business critical meetings (Effective March 16, 2020)
  • Social distancing in office meetings
  • Providing a safe place in the office for older children of Phenix family members who are displaced by school closures

 

Additionally, we have worked with our IT partners to prepare a business continuity plan in the event it is necessary. This includes work from home capabilities for our staff such as:

 

  • An effective number of mobile phones with call forwarding capability
  • Remote access capabilities for all business critical and customer experience staff
  • Communicating with all suppliers to identify potential issues with supply chain including placing supplemental orders for supplies that we feel are threatened
