ONGOING PREVENTATIVE STEPS IN PLACE

- We are actively reminding our employees about respiratory etiquette and frequent hand washing.
- No person who has been exposed to COVID-19, or who has recently traveled internationally, is permitted to enter any of our facilities.
- Only essential vendors are currently permitted to enter our facilities and are interviewed regarding potential exposure, international travel, symptoms, etc. before being granted access.
- We have implemented social distancing strategies to include the following:
- Physically dispersing members of a team who work on a particular program, or call type throughout our contact centers, to reduce the risk of illness impacting an entire team.
- Utilizing cross-trained resources within our manufacturing teams to disperse equipment and process skillsets to mitigate downtime due to potential absenteeism.
- Utilizing empty workstations and office space for employees and contractors throughout our facilities where possible.
- Limiting and eliminating in-person huddles/meetings and reducing the use of common areas and break rooms.
- Staggered shift start/stop times to mitigate physical team overlap.
- We continue to monitor our supply chains and currently have the supplies and inventory needed to maintain operations and serve our clients and their customers.
- We continue to protect our data and facilities with all of our standard security controls in place.
MESSAGE FROM MATRIX CEO, JOHN HARTWELL MAY 1, 2020
The Matrix family thanks all of our partners/stakeholders for your loyalty and concern for our collective well-being; we share those sentiments for you as well. Further, we appreciate the business impact several of you are feeling; know we will do whatever we can to help you during these trying times.
We remain customer and employee vigilant and trust you appreciate how we are all affected in some regard by the Pandemic. Our NY and TX production teams are at typical operational levels without impact from the virus. Matrix continues to follow strict operational protocols to ensure the safety of our workforce and our families. Daily communication is our norm; in fact, we have become quite adept with video conferencing!
Matrix, as well as our supply chain, are considered ‘ESSENTIAL’ and are exempt from the closures imposed on other businesses. Our service levels, quality, and supply chain health have been unaffected, and Matrix has run normally throughout this crisis. Matrix continues to monitor several important data sources to ensure we are on top of the changing environment and how it may impact us and/or you.
Most of our office team continues to work remotely, and we are in daily contact to ensure we all ‘stay together and stay plugged in.’ We all need each other, and the video conference tool is the next best thing to being in the office/plant together.
As a communications company proudly serving you, we understand the need to get timely, accurate, and concise information to you. We also understand your need to get similar communications to your clients. If we can help you in any way, please contact us. Feel free to leverage our robust communications platform for mail fulfillment, SMS text, and email announcements or campaigns. We’re here to help.
We remain confident we will all get through these challenging times and are eager to continue to support you. Feel free to contact your sales rep, our Senior Vice President of Sales, Brian Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org), or me (email@example.com) for any questions or concerns you may have.
