We provide information and regular updates to our employees and communities of interest about Teck’s response to COVID-19.
COVID-19 Protocols and Prevention Measures
Information and updates about COVID-19 protocols and prevention measures are communicated via a number of internal channels, externally through response-specific web content and social/traditional media, and through direct engagement with communities of interest.
Teck’s leadership, including the President and CEO, members of the company’s senior management team, and operational general managers, communicate regularly with employees to provide updates on a range of pandemic-related topics, including Teck’s response to COVID-19, new and expanded employee support services and programs, and company position and outlook.
New and Expanded Communications Channels
We have introduced a number of new communications while expanding others to ensure our employees are receiving regular and timely updates, including virtual townhalls, an SMS text alert system, digital signage, and dedicated COVID-19 response sections on our employee intranet and corporate website, www.teck.com/updates and www.teck.com/bestdefence
Employees as Courageous Safety Leaders
We provide opportunities for our employees to demonstrate courageous safety leadership through participation in peer-to-peer communications. Our Stopping the Spread. It Starts with Me. and Speak Up to Stop the Spread campaigns provided employees with a forum to offer a personal perspective on the importance of stopping the spread of COVID-19 at work and in the community.
Recognizing Our Employees
We recognize our employees’ commitment to safeguarding the health and safety of their co-workers, loved ones and communities throughout the pandemic. This recognition is at the local and corporate level and shared across our internal channels, like Connect, our employee magazine, and on our social channels.
We have partnered with Karina LeBlanc, former Olympic women’s soccer goalkeeper for Team Canada, and Gary Medel, member of the Chilean national soccer team and the Italian club Bologna, to address pandemic fatigue and promote the critical importance of continuing to follow protocols and preventative measures. The Best Defence campaign is underway internally and across Teck’s social channels.
