WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

What we're doing to help our valued associates

This is truly an unprecedented time in our history that we will get through together. We know that it is creating significant personal hardships, especially for our dedicated hourly associates who serve our clients and customers every day. As always, nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our employees.

 

EMPLOYEE JOB PLACEMENT PROGRAM

We’re supporting our U.S. hourly associates whose jobs have been affected or hours have been reduced by the crisis, with temporary work at Aramark locations where extra support is needed.

WELL-BEING OF OUR EMPLOYEES

We have implemented the following measures to help our valued associates through this difficult time:

  • For U.S. part-time and full-time field associates in active account locations with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or who are quarantined due to COVID-19 related symptoms or exposure, we will provide up to 21 additional days of sick time, once all accrued sick time has been exhausted. This additional paid time off will be at no cost to the associate, regardless of how many sick days the associate has accrued.
  • We will extend company-paid medical benefits coverage through June 30, 2020 for associates enrolled in Aramark benefit plans who are dealing with reduced hours or site closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • All Aramark employees will have access to Telehealth, a 24/7 resource for people who feel sick and need immediate access to advice and care from a licensed medical professional.
  • In addition, our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to all employees and their families at no cost. It provides helpful tools for managing anxiety and fears, including support to help you explain this complex situation to your children.

 

SAFETY

We are taking the necessary steps to stay informed and engaged with the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization guidance for preventing and reducing the spread of COVID-19. In order to ensure workplace safety and maintain a safe environment to serve our clients and customers, we are doing the following:

  • Taking proactive steps to review and refresh general safety procedures with associates.
  • Being extra vigilant and intensifying preventative measures, such as implementing enhanced sanitation and hygiene practices across all of our operations.
  • Working closely with our partners to assess and modify customer-facing services in order to provide a safe and comfortable environment.
  • Continuing to follow and apply our long-established food safety processes and protocols within our operations.
  • Monitoring the situation within our businesses through our dedicated Aramark Response Committee and keeping our field teams up to date on required actions.
