COVID-19 Considerations
We value the safety of each member of our community because we know we're all in this together. In many locations, which may change over time, we've implemented a virtual hiring process and continue to interview candidates by video or phone. In addition, in some locations, only individuals who have been fully vaccinated will be permitted inside (COMPANY NAME) offices until further notice.

In the US, (COMPANY NAME) is a government contractor, which may legally require most (COMPANY NAME) employees to be vaccinated unless a verified approved medical or religious exemption is granted. Further, we are currently making every effort towards having employees return to work in the office 2 days per week, if that makes sense for their team. Everyone must be vaccinated to enter (COMPANY NAME) offices at this time. Therefore, we expect all candidates to be vaccinated or to be approved for a medical or religious accommodation prior to commencing work at (COMPANY NAME).

Corporate Security Responsibility
All activities involving access to (COMPANY NAME) assets, information, and networks comes with an inherent risk to the organization and, therefore, it is expected that every person working for, or on behalf of, (COMPANY NAME) is responsible for information security and must:
* Abide by (COMPANY NAME)'s security policies and practices;
* Ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the information being accessed;
* Report any suspected information security violation or breach, and
* Complete all periodic mandatory security trainings in accordance with (COMPANY NAME)'s guidelines
