In light of ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) developments, the CDC has recently updated their employer recommendations to ensure they are ready to implement strategies to protect their workforce from COVID-19 while protecting the continuity of operations. The CDC recommendation for an Infectious Disease Outbreak Response Plan entails the exploration of policies and practices that allow flexible work schedules, including telecommuting: “Ensure that you have the information technology and infrastructure needed to support multiple employees who may be able to work from home.”

Meridian is your committed partner to advise, address, and execute your telecommuting policies regarding your telephony environment. We can work with you to ensure you are ready to support remote employees if needed. Telecommuting strategies may include VPN phone configuration and deployment, Remote Worker, Avaya Equinox Mobility Client, and other options to fit your specific business needs.

Additionally, we want to reassure you that Meridian is also actively monitoring the COVID-19 developments, and has plans in place to safeguard our employees and our ability to service your company’s needs simultaneously. A large majority of the Meridian workforce already utilizes flexible and remote working arrangements, and we are working through contingency plans for situations where physical presence is required to ensure your business continuity.
