As with many companies, we are making difficult decisions regarding our business including closing our stores and significantly reducing staffing levels at our factory and administrative offices. These decisions are made in response to the significant impact that the Coronavirus has had on the economy and as a result our business.
The remaining employee group is quite small and we will be able to maintain appropriate protocols to ensure their safety. Should that at any time not be the case, the factory and offices will close. Employees do work voluntarily and will not lose their jobs should they decide to stay at home.
We will be working with all impacted employees to assist them in understanding various benefit programs that may be available to them. All of our employees are important to us and we regret the negative impact that these decisions will have on their lives.
During this quiet time, we will also continue to invest in upgrades to our plant and equipment. We will ensure that we are ready for the future, whatever it brings. We have been around for over 135 years and there is no reason to expect that we are going to disappear now.
We wish you well & thank you for your support,
President & CEO,
Rogers’ Chocolates Ltd.
