Welcome to our new series, “Ask an Integrity Expert!” These blogs will feature Ellen Kuntzmann, Director of Talent Acquisition at Integrity, answering the most frequently asked questions we hear from our job candidates and associates.
Q: What COVID-19 safety measures do you have in place at each location?
A: Integrity has always required safety inspections and protocols at every job site where our associates will be placed. Since the advent of COVID-19, our efforts have become even more comprehensive. Here’s what you can expect:
- Daily temperature checks when entering the building
- Online symptom checker must be filled out by the associate
- Face masks must be worn for the duration of the shift
- Social distancing enforced with plastic barriers, rearranged furniture/equipment and traffic flow control
- Remote processing of job application steps such as I9 completion
- Contactless drug testing
Any company that cares about the health and safety of their workers must accept that these measures are now the normal expectation. And as far as I know, they are not going away anytime soon. Fortunately, most of our current and prospective associates have also accepted this new reality. Out of tens of thousands of job applicants, only one has removed themselves from consideration due to not wanting to wear a face mask for a full shift.
Integrity is working hard to maintain a leadership role in COVID protocols on the job, and ensure that it’s safe to work at every job site. We’ll get through this together!
