May 18, 2020: CEO Update on CDP's Response to COVID-19

18 May

Hello Everyone,

I want to give you a brief update on our plans for COVID-19. We continue to limit access to our offices in Romeoville and Frankfort and encourage folks to work from home for the near future. Some of our staff are approved to come in to manage data center and equipment deliveries and installations. If you desire to work in either facility please contact your manager and we will consider these requests on a case by case basis.  

Please continue to reserve your travel plans for trips that are business critical. Before scheduling a trip, you should be working with your manager to determine if there are any alternatives. Business travel should be limited to those situations where we cannot reasonably meet our contractual obligations  without face-to-face interaction or visits to specific locations. Your manager must approve all travel (including trips that were previously approved) until further notice.

Bonnie [HR Specialist], Kelly [Treasurer], Steve [Vice President], and I are working on plans for reopening our offices in line with official recommendations. We will keep you advised of our progress.

I am proud of the work all of us are doing to prevent the spread of the virus while keeping up with our work. Thank you for your diligence and dedication.
