As we continue to serve you and other Conductor customers around the world, we want to share some information about our plan to ensure the health, wellness, and security of our team during the continued spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. People are our top priority. And, as a team, we are working to minimize the spread of the virus for everyone’s sake.
Increasing health safety while minimizing risk
Conductor has offices in San Francisco, New York City, London, Austin, Denver, and Kyiv. We also host small events, like dinners, meetups, and workshops, and large events like C3, our global conference. To address the challenges we are all faced with, we are taking the precautions described below. These are provisional measures and may change as new data and guidance emerge.
We’ve taken our global marketing conference C3 virtual
After careful consideration of the developing situation, we have decided to move C3 2020 from an in-person event to a free, virtual keynote experience on Tuesday, May 12, 2020. It’s become clear that the best way for us to bring marketers together is virtually. In the keynote, we’ll cover:
- Trends we’re seeing that will define the future of search and content marketing
- New technology, unveiled exclusively at the digital event
- The SEO tactics to win in 2020 and beyond
- Plus, a few special surprises and giveaways
We’re requesting that team members in all our offices—San Francisco, New York City, London, Austin, Denver, and Kyiv—work from home.
We’ve instituted a robust and global work-from-home (WFH) policy, recommending that all employees work from home. The policy includes mandatory WFH days for deep cleaning and sanitation.
We are continuing to monitor the situation around the world and may enact a mandatory work-from-home (WFH) policy for all employees as the situation develops.
As working remotely can make certain functions and roles more difficult, we are ensuring that all team members have the resources they need to continue bringing you the best experience with Conductor’s products and services while remaining safe.
We’ve restricted business travel and are asking for caution with personal travel
We place the highest value on person-to-person communication, but for public safety, we have temporarily restricted all travel between offices, attendance at conferences, and all other business-related trips.
We also have asked our team members to consider the public health costs of taking personal international trips. Team members returning from currently affected areas (any area where the government has imposed quarantines or travel restrictions) are asked to work from home for a period of 14 days.
We are implementing steps to reduce exposure and stop transmission both inside our offices and with customers
In addition to the work-from-home guidelines listed above, we have also canceled all in-person meetings. Meetings with vendors and business partners when necessary will happen through video conference.
All interviews with prospective team members are being scheduled remotely through video conferencing to ensure that candidates are able to protect their own health as well as the safety of their families.
We’re all helping each other make remote work a positive and productive experience
We have launched company-wide training and had our veteran work-from-homers create videos and share insights on how to stay productive, connected, and sane while working from home.
In addition to material we have collected to help team members through this difficult period, we will continue to add up-to-date tips for remote work, including advice and best practices for remote collaboration and team building.
Conductor is working to keep everyone in our network and community safe and healthy
We want to keep you, our Conductor team, their families, and our broader communities safe. We believe it’s important to be prepared and to be transparent about these actions in case they are useful to others trying to do the same.
