A Message From Our CEO
To our Weleda community,
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve and social distancing impacts how we gather for work and leisure, I want to let you know that Weleda is doing everything we can to support the health, wellness and safety of our employees, their loved ones and our customer community as a whole.
We’re taking our direction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the World Health Organization. We’ve adopted a work-from-home policy and halted business travel for the time being. For those few whose tasks require them to be on-site, including our shipping department, appropriate distancing measures are in effect and work areas are routinely disinfected throughout the day. We remain focused on continuing to empower people to live their best lives with a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit while collectively being responsible stewards of the planet.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a surge in orders placed and we’re doing everything physically possible to ensure your orders are shipped quickly and in safe conditions. We ask for your patience and understanding if it takes a little longer than usual to ship your order. As the situation changes, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
While social distancing is vital to flattening the curve to slow the spread of COVID-19, we know it can leave some feeling isolated and distanced from family, friends and their familiar routine. Founded 99 years ago on the belief that the human body is part of nature, we encourage you to embrace nature’s restorative effects in an effort to find a bit of balance. A walk outside can help you feel refreshed. Even something as simple as periodically pausing to take three conscious breaths can help to calm and re-focus the mind during an uncertain time.
If you have questions, please be in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take good care of yourselves and one another,
Rob Keen, CEO Weleda North America
