Employees

As we do our part working with the globe to slow the spread of Covid-19 we’re also doing our best to minimize disruptions to our day-to-day operations. We understand that our employees and valued customers rely on us for income and business support; thus, we will remain open and operational through this event. We will be maintaining the highest standards possible to ensure employee safety, including updated sick policies, travel policies and frequent, deep cleaning of the facilities.

We ask that all employees follow the below guidelines:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, for at least 30 seconds regularly
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer upon arrival to work
  • Clorox wipe/disinfect your area regularly
  • Shield your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or elbow (NOT your hands), if you do sneeze or cough, please sanitize or wash ASAP.
  • Stay home when you are sick, especially with respiratory symptoms
  • Respiratory symptoms include coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath and/or a temperature above 37.5 degrees C.
  • Leave work if you develop these symptoms
  • Call your doctor if you have any concerns with your health

As a team, in addition to the travel policies, there are many things we need to do to ensure we keep the workplace safe.

  1. 1
    Stay at home if you OR someone in your home is sick.

    If you OR ANYONE IN YOUR HOME is mildly sick or experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay home. If you are able, you have a proper high-speed internet connection, and your program is eligible, please work from home. If you don’t yet have equipment for work at home, we will arrange to meet you outside the building for pickup.

  2. 2
    Contact with someone with COVID-19.

    If you have had very close contact with someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, please work from home if you have proper broadband, and your client program is work at home eligible, and if not, stay home for at least 14 days. If you need to pick the equipment up, we’ll meet you outside with it.

  3. 3
    You suspect you have COVID-19.

    Leave work. Notify your doctor. Notify work. God speed. When well enough and at your discretion, you can work from home. If you don’t yet have equipment for work at home, we will drop it outside your house. (Of course this equipment will not be coming back into the center anytime soon.) While most cases are mild, only work if you feel up to it, please don’t push yourself. Regardless, you will need to stay away from the office for no less than 14 days from when you last experience symptoms. The 14 days could be extended, if the CDC/PUBLIC HEALTH AGENCY OF CANADA advises.

  4. 4
    Wash our hands regularly.

    Proper handwashing remains the best way to prevent transmission of the virus. Wash your hands after using the restroom, touching your face, eating, drinking, coughing, or sneezing, and at regular intervals throughout the day. Use warm soapy water and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Alternatively, alcohol-based hand sanitizer is effective as well. Be generous with it, a little doesn’t get the job done. If your center runs out because of shortages, soap and water is axctual more effective. Do it often, for Grandma, please.

  5. 5
    Cover your mouth.

    COVER YOUR MOUTH WITH TWO HANDS OR YOUR FULL ELBOW SO YOU DON’T SPREAD THE FUNK, WHATEVER IT MAY BE. DON’T BE GROSS. HAND SANITIZE AFTERWARDS.

Work At Home Programs

We are working around the clock to implement work at home for supported programs. While not all programs are currently permitted to work from home and some client and systems will not support work from home, by implementing work from home as widely as possible, it furthers our efforts to increase social distancing both for those working remotely and those employees who work from the MCI facilities by ideally allowing people to sit further away from each other. In anticipation of more work at home opportunities, please consider ordering a high-speed wired connection at home to ensure it can be delivered or installed this month.

We know that there are a lot of questions and that misinformation and fear can spread more virulently than the virus itself, and we want to discourage false information from circulating. If you’re looking for trusted, up-to-date information on the status and policies of MCI contact centers, please visit this page as it will have the most up-to-date news and information.

CDC and PHAC Guidance

Out of an abundance of caution, we are following CDC and Public Health Agency of Canada’s recommendations on prevention in order to keep all of our employees healthy.

Per the PHAC guidance we are taking the following measures:

  • We are asking employees that are sick to stay home, especially with respiratory symptoms or fever
  • We are posting and encouraging frequent hand washing and covering all of your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
  • We are following PHAC recommendations and evaluating activities that could potentially increase the risks, which includes certain types of travel, such as cruises and international travel.

WIRED HIGH-SPEED INTERNET PROVIDERS You need a Cable, DSL, or Fiber Connection to Work from Home

Wired broadband essentially means there is a physical connection to a physical location (home or business) through a cable. There are three main types of wired broadband connections for consumer or residential use: DSL, coaxial cable, and fiber. DSL uses traditional copper wire telephone lines. Cable television companies traditionally provide service over coaxial cables. Fiber systems are comprised of glass fiber strands over which optical (light) signals are sent. (Other options for wired broadband include T1 or T3 lines and Broadband over Power Lines (BPL)).
