At Canada Life Investments, the health and wellbeing of our employees, intermediaries and customers is always our top priority, so we want to reassure you that we are actively monitoring the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on all our stakeholders. We are taking this situation very seriously and we fully recognise that our company has an important role to play during this trying time.
Over the last week we have seen a significant shift in the coronavirus situation around the world, affecting people’s lives, their health, economies and markets in general. Everyone is going above and beyond to ensure we maintain the day to day running of our company whilst protecting our colleagues’ health and wellbeing, as well as keeping our promises to our customers.
We have worked tirelessly to put in place new measures that keep us safe and give us extra resilience to keep our business running as we face growing uncertainty.
Our employees are at the heart of everything we do, and we are committed to taking care of them. We already have work from home capacity and are expanding this to enable more employees to do so. For roles where work from home is not possible, we are modifying the work environment for those employees to protect their health and safety. We have also limited business travel. We are leveraging our technology by conducting meetings and business through teleconferencing and videoconferencing.
We remain open for business and we are taking steps to continue to serve and support our customers, intermediaries and employees as this situation evolves and will continue to monitor advice from the government and health professionals.
