HOW MORRISETTE IS CONTINUING TO SUPPORT OUR PEOPLE & COMMUNITY THROUGH COVID-19
When Covid-19 first started at the beginning of the year, we could not have predicted that it would come to reshape the way people live and work all over the world. We recognize that this has created hardships for individuals and businesses alike. As these problems persist, we aim to be a champion for positivity and hope.
For Our People
Through the pandemic, Morrisette has stayed dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of our people. We were an early adopter of guaranteeing jobs for our people, and we continue to focus on ways to ensure that our people feel safe at work and home.
As a supplier of packaging, janitorial, and personal protective equipment, Morrisette has retained its position as an Essential Business as defined by the US Department of Homeland Security. Because of this, we have been able to maintain operations and continue servicing our customers.
The bottom line: our business output hasn’t changed and we’re still operating at full capacity. If anything, we’re working harder than before so that we can have solutions ready for our customers when they need them.
For Our Customers
We have also stepped up to respond to the packaging push for automation and efficiency, reducing employee contact and contamination. We are using these processes and equipment in our own warehouses, and are helping our customers to do the same. By introducing new automation technologies to our customers, they have been able to keep their people safe, while retaining production levels.
Morrisette has always been actively dedicated to innovation, being nimble, and being ethical. This has positioned us to be able to respond during a crisis and remain a source of security and comfort for our customers, employees, and community.
In order to keep our people and customers safe, our sales processes have evolved to more virtual introductory calls. This has helped us get in front of customers as needed in a safe way. At the same time, we know how important it is to have a hands-on approach for our audit processes. Our packaging auditors are armed with the PPE they need to stay safe and still be able to get accurate information from and to our customers.
For The Community
Philanthropy and social responsibility are important to us. Even before the pandemic, we actively sought ways to connect with our community and support those in need. This year we have strived to step up and do as much as we possibly ca to support those in need.
