As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, Morneau Shepell is following the situation closely and taking steps to support both our employees as well as the people we support. Our planning and action to date addresses four main scenarios for each location in our global operations:
- Elevated risk that is largely travel related
- Small clusters of community outbreaks
- Wide-scale community outbreak
- Wide-scale illness
All of Morneau Shepell’s operations are continuing without disruption. In addition, our core services, including counselling and other EAP services, trauma assist, cognitive behavioural therapy, e-learning and webinars, absence and disability management, administrative services and retirement consulting services are designed to be delivered to you and your people remotely as needed or requested.
Several of our clients have reached out to request more detailed information on how we can help their employees, specifically with the impact of COVID-19. We are here to help and can do so in several ways.
