Our response to COVID-19 efforts
First, our thoughts and hearts go out to those people around the world mentally or physically impacted by COVID-19. We are monitoring the rapidly changing situation and working with local health and government officials on best steps forward. We recognize that this terrible pandemic, and our responses to it, will have far-reaching impacts on business, employment, and all of our daily lives.
We believe the best thing we can do for all of our people is make informed decisions based on facts as we do our part to try to slow the spread of COVID-19. This is unchartered territory for us all. Up to this point in time, we have operating on working indoors everywhere else. In the meantime, we welcome our customers to visit us on anjerebel.com where they can experience and shop our strong digital channel.
At ANJE (ANJE Rebel and ANJE World), we value our people above all else. Any associate that is ill or has symptoms is able to take time off, and we are doing all that we can to remove financial barriers for all of our people so that they can receive diagnostic testing or medical care when needed. We have also taken the following immediate steps for our teams and communities:
In our distribution centers, we have maximized cleaning measures to ensure safe product shipping. In addition, we have reduce the amount of associates spending time together in close proximity, reduced the meeting hours and days, and implemented additional safety measures.
Our corporate associates are working remotely if they are able to do so, and meeting only in small groups. We are using technology to help keep us connected and we are still meeting and collaborating digitally.
As we continue to assess the rapidly evolving situation, we will keep you informed of any changes to our operations. Until then, please stay connected through our social channels - we would love to hear from you.
Although I recognize the days ahead will be challenging, we will remain true to the very heart of our purpose - optimism. Let’s stay connected and strong together.
