When the COVID-19 global pandemic hit the U.S., Quincy Media worked to keep its teams safe and its audiences informed. This priority continues every day as our team members work to serve their communities.
Thanks to a pandemic plan that was developed years in advance, our employees across nine states were able to adapt quickly. Leadership promptly decided to have employees work from home when possible to reduce the risk of exposure and spread of Coronavirus.
Fewer than 50% of employees spend time in our buildings on any given day. Generally 15% to 30% work in our buildings. The rest work from home. This is possible thanks to our investments in technology and remaining mindful that one day we would find it necessary to implement such a plan.
For those employees who work in our buildings, many safety measures keep them safe. From advanced cleaning procedures, to installing workstation screens and providing PPE, Quincy Media is taking every precaution necessary to keep our teams safe and healthy.
Our employees receive regular communications from management including our CEO.
“QMI employees across the country have risen to the challenges, solved problems, learned new skills and delivered critical information to our communities. Millions of our viewers, listeners and readers have, and will continue, to rely on us to give them the facts they need to keep themselves and their families informed and safe.”Quincy Media CEO Ralph Oakley
Quincy Media’s commitment to keeping our employees safe will not subside. Our teams are doing extraordinary work. We will navigate this uncertain time together and adapt and adjust as needed to keep the communities we serve informed.
