COVID-19:

Committed to Helping
our Community Stay Safe

It’s during times of crisis that community becomes more important than ever before. You already know that here at BDS, people are our top priority – your people and our people. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are doing everything possible to help our community stay safe.

We’re taking proactive measures to ensure the ongoing health and safety of our staff, stores and customers everywhere with this dual approach:

1
Protecting All People

Protecting
All People

  • Developed a 6-Pillar Strategy: Anticipate, Navigate, Communicate, Listen, Learn & Lead to protect our people and our business from COVID-19
  • Vigorously checking developments on the COVID-19 outbreak and adhering to all CDC and state/regional guidelines
  • Consistent and regular communication to our employees to mitigate any health concerns that they have
  • Closed our offices and enabled all employees to work remote wherever possible to a workplace
  • Partnered with our clients to protect as many jobs as possible with alternate value-add projects until stores reopen
  • Encouraging our employees to take care of their health first and foremost, if they are not feeling well, we are asking them to stay home and get well before returning to a workplace
  • If any employee is returning from a trip out of the country, we are asking them to self-quarantine at home for 14 days prior to returning to the workplace
  • Asking our employees to take additional precautionary measures before entering retailers and workplaces, which includes regular use of hand sanitizer, disinfecting spray/wipes, and facial coverings or shields in stores
  • Developed a Safe @ Work Office Plan to adhere to new workplace standards once our offices reopen
  • Developed a Safe @ Work Field Reintegration Plan to ensure our field teams can comfortably readjust to the new normal standards as they begin returning
    to stores
