Psychological Associates’ Response to COVID-19
At Psychological Associates, we are proud to serve not only our clients, but also our local, national, and global community. We take our place within these communities seriously, and in light of recent concerns around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we are doing our part to safeguard the health and well-being of our own team, and those we care about. To that end, we have taken the below precautions, in line with CDC recommendations, to ensure the safety of both our clients, staff, and community members.
Our Team Is Working Remotely, Effective March 17
In order to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19, our team will be closing our offices and operating remotely through March 30. We are confident that this move is the right one both for public health, and for our clients. Our team has conducted a thorough assessment of our virtual workforce capabilities, and our temporary move should in no way impact our ability to serve our clients at the highest levels.
April 8 – 10 Q4 Leadership: The People Skills Advantage Program Is Postponed
Due to health and safety concerns around recent outbreaks of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our April 8 – 10 session of Q4 Leadership: The People Skills Advantage. If you or your colleague are currently enrolled in this session, our team is available to assist with rescheduling. Our next session is June 23 – 25, and you can find a full list of upcoming dates here.
We are also offering the option to enroll in our new blended learning program, The Q4 Edge. The e-learning portion of this program will begin in June, with a one-day in-person, facilitated session on August 18. Please contact Jessica Lefton at email@example.com or (314) 567-5636 for more information.
Virtual Assessments and Interviews Are Available
Our team has offered virtual proctoring and interviews for several years — in this way, we are well prepared for the current situation. Out of an abundance of concern for the safety of both our clients and our staff, we are suspending in-person assessments and interviews, effective March 17.
If you have candidates scheduled to assess and/or interview in our offices, our team will be in touch to provide links and reschedule as needed. For more information on these services, please contact our scheduling team at firstname.lastname@example.org. In-person interviews will resume at a later date, to be determined.
Ongoing Updates for a Fast-Changing Situation
We will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) response to and guidance about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Psychological Associates will follow the guidance of the CDC and the State of Missouri.
