Bayer continues to work closely with local, state and national health officials during this global pandemic. We have established dedicated internal response teams to monitor the situation and establish any necessary policies and practices to ensure the safety of our employees, partners, and customers.
We have implemented measures regarding increased hygiene, cleaning and sanitizing of our sites and touchpoints. For employees, we have introduced safety and social distancing practices recommended by health officials.
Our employees, in every area of our company, remain committed to putting you, our customer, front and center. Let me reassure you, we remain committed to providing business continuity in our daily operations and ensuring we deliver on our commitments to the greatest extent possible under these challenging circumstances. For our operation sites, we have staffing plans to maintain plant and facility operations in order to provide the products and services you depend on during the 2020 season and beyond.
Regarding our support offices, we currently have some global sites closed in high to medium risk areas in line with efforts to limit exposure. In these locations around the globe, we have implemented a work-from-home policy to ensure the health and safety of employees and maintain business continuity.
This situation will remain dynamic, and we are committed to communicating any changes as they may arise in the days or weeks to follow. As always, we are open to hearing from you. Please contact us or reach out to the sales representative in your local area with any questions.
From everyone at Bayer, we will not lose focus on our purpose, Science for a Better Life. In fact, it’s during challenging times that we need this mission more than ever. We want to continue to thank you for your business each and every day. We are committed to keeping our promise to you and doing our best to support health, nutrition, and safety around the world.
