In light of the rapid progression of COVID-19, and in the spirit of protecting our employees, families and communities, Vanilla has decided to close our two offices and institute a work from home policy.

Even though the number of cases is extremely low in our area (Montreal and Ottawa), we want to do everything we can to help slow the spread. We join our voices to our many peers that have done the same. We encourage other businesses that can establish a work from home policy to do the same to help us flatten the curve.

With this work from home policy, we want to reassure our customers and partners that we are ready and able to assist you. Our teams are highly collaborative and leverage all the tools necessary to stay connected and productive. Consider this business as usual, just at a safe and responsible distance.

Prior to this decision, we conducted a dry run and are confident that this policy will have no short term impact on our operations.  We will also be continuing hiring and conducting interviews over Zoom web video.  

To our customers, should the coronavirus create an unexpected need, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
