A Return to a New Normal
In some way, COVID-19 impacted businesses, and the construction industry in the state of Maryland became essential. The safety of our valued employees is a priority, and drastic changes were implemented company wide. Approximately 90% of our in-office personnel began working remotely, 100%. While occasional remote working is not unfamiliar to Welch and Rushe, 5-days a week for six straight weeks was an uncommon scenario. In accordance with Maryland’s re-opening guidelines, OSHA and the CDC, we are upholding all in-office safety measures for our employees; this includes but not limited to the implementation of in office social distancing, increased surface cleaning, and close adherence to face coverings while in the office. As a result of our new in-office norms, we are pleased to share that our office personnel are now physically back in the office three days a week. Thank you, team, for your partnership, patience, and trust during those uncertain times. You were missed, and we are happy to see you.
