A Message From Our President
At DRI, the health and safety of our customers and employees is our highest priority. From the onset of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic, we have remained abreast of the situation and made appropriate adjustments to our company policies in accordance with CDC and WHO guidelines. We will continue monitoring the situation and assessing risks and are prepared to implement new travel policies as they become necessary.
DRI has implemented the following policies as of May 15, 2020. We will continue to communicate additional policy changes to our customers as the situation evolves.
- All physical DRI offices will remain closed through at least July 31. DRI employees that regularly report to an office will continue to work from home during this time.
- Routine travel is suspended and DRI team members continue to conduct client meetings via phone and videoconferencing. We may make exceptions for travel in instances where no alternative is available, but only when it is safe and legal. We will continue to observe federal, state, and local laws as well as guidance from the CDC and WHO.
We recognize that this is a challenging time and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our customers, employees, and partners.
