Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

by Janine Robin
March 16, 2020

At Optimum Talent, we care deeply about our colleagues, clients, and communities. We take the evolving nature of the coronavirus very seriously. While the risks and long-term impacts are difficult to quantify, we will continue to take the appropriate steps to safeguard the businesses and people we serve. One thing that is certain: our collective leadership will be a critical part of the solution as we navigate and recover together.

Our vision remains the same: to create a better world through better workplaces and assist client organizations to achieve success through people.

Optimum’s offerings will be made accessible both in-person and remotely to clients regardless of their physical location. We do not anticipate significant interruptions to services and are fully committed to maintaining a safe environment for all visitors.

Wishing you health and wellness through this difficult time.

From our Optimum Talent family to yours,

Mike Bacchus
CEO, Optimum Talent Inc.
