DENSO North American Facilities to Remain in Current Reopening Phases through June 30, 2021
Most North American employees who can will continue to work remotely
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., (Feb. 24, 2021) – DENSO has announced that all of its North American locations will stay in their current reopening phases until June 30, 2021. The decision follows a thorough company analysis of the COVID-19 situation in communities where it is located, which considered key factors like infection rates, vaccination statuses, government orders and industry benchmarks.
Under this direction, most employees who can complete their role remotely will continue to do so. This approach helps DENSO keep its facility populations down, which in turn strengthens safety measures it implemented at the pandemic’s start to protect employees working onsite. DENSO continually evaluates local situations and will notify employees of an extension of or change in this guidance prior to June’s end.
DENSO is also developing a new, North America-wide remote work policy to promote more flexible work opportunities for its employees. The company will introduce the details of the new policy once it is able to advance to less restrictive reopening phases.
Safety is at DENSO’s core, which is why the mobility supplier is committed to following the guidance of local and national health officials to prioritize the health and wellbeing of its employees. This reopening update represents the latest in a series of ongoing COVID-19 policies that DENSO has implemented over the past year. Past COVID-19 policy updates include:
- Updates to Visitor and Travel Polices
- The Creation of a Phased Return-to-Work Plan
- The Development of a Risk Minimization Toolkit
