Clients and Partners,
VAA began its transition to welcome employees back to the office on Tuesday, May 26. The below FAQs are to help answer inquiries you may have about our first-phase office integration during the COVID-19 pandemic.
VAA’s objective remains to create a safe work environment while providing a seamless transition in our workflow and work together to maintain our project responsibilities.
No. Only VAA employees who showed interest will be able to enter the office while most employees continue to work remotely. All VAA employees are encouraged to continue to use online capabilities to conduct business operations with clients.
Travel is restricted for VAA employees using parameters noted below. In general, we continue to instruct our employees not to travel.
Domestic critical travel may be allowed to meet project needs but must be approved in writing by a Partner.
Clients will be asked specific site questions for VAA employees to understand additional Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) requirements and / or other site guidelines related to COVID-19.
Pending site or facility location, a Partner may require a VAA employee to self-quarantine prior to returning to the office or additional travel.
VAA office employees will adhere to a health screen attestation prior to entering the building every day and agree to workplace expectations, including wearing a mask, social distance guidelines and exercising the CDC’s COVID-19 Guidelines related to personal hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
Reach out to your respective VAA Partner or project manager via phone or email.
We continue to be here for you and are so glad we are! Information of our status will be provided as developments occur. Thank you again for your partnership.
