Avenica COVID-19 Response

Updated: March 20, 2020

Message for our valued client partners (candidates see response below)

Thank you for your ongoing trust and partnership. At Avenica, we are set up and currently working remotely so you will experience little to no disruption in services or communications. As we have already seen and will undoubtedly continue to experience in the coming weeks, hiring and workplace practices are changing rapidly, but work still continues. We have already seen a spike in requests for talent but want to assure you that we’re still able to accommodate your needs so that you can continue to be as productive as possible during these uncertain times.

In addition, and consistent with CDC guidance, we have taken the following steps and are asking candidates to:

  • Notify us and their onsite direct supervisor and not come to the workplace if they are exhibiting signs, have been subject to potential exposure, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have any other reason to believe they were exposed to the virus.
  • Inform us of travel to CDC Level 3 and Level 2 countries and to not come into the workplace after such travel, before being cleared by the company.
  • Not come to the workplace if they have any flu symptoms or are otherwise ill.
  • Avenica candidates with symptoms of acute respiratory illness have been told to be 24 hours symptom-free without the aid of medication before returning to work.
  • Understand that they may be subject to up to 14 days of restriction from the workplace and may be required to supply a healthcare provider’s certificate to return to work.

We have also advised our current candidates on assignment to work with you to understand and comply with your company’s specific policies and procedures surrounding COVID-19. If you currently have an Avenica candidate on staff, we ask that you share your company’s specific COVID-19 protocol with that individual.

For in-person interviews and other candidate interactions, we’re happy to work with you and your teams to adhere to your internal policies and preferences around meetings and person-to-person contact and are able to provide video conferencing to enable continued progress for interviewing.

For any additional questions, contact your normal primary contact, or submit questions or concerns to Avenica’s Chief Experience Officer Katie Drews and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
