SMX COVID-19 Response
Continuity of Operations for Seamless Support
As part of the Defense Industrial Base and considered an essential business, SMX has remained vigilant in this time of crisis to ensure our global workforce is safe and our client’s missions are assured.
The virus has and will continue to cause great challenges to companies across the globe as they concentrate on fulfilling their employee and client responsibilities while maintaining the overall health of their corporate entity. Our first priority is to remain healthy and minimize the spread of COVID-19. We are committed to supporting the critical missions of our clients while maintaining the continuity of SMX business operations.
Our Valued Workforce
SMX immediately implemented mass voluntary telework arrangements for employees who are able to work remotely. We also have implemented extensive disinfection procedures in our office locations and have continuously monitored the situation globally, nationally, and in each state. We have communicated current social distancing and health guidelines recommended by the CDC to our workforce on a regular, ongoing basis and have provided alternate accommodations and the tools and technology needed to perform their job functions successfully. In addition, SMX offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefit to support the well-being of employees and families during this time.
We are continuing to hire and onboard new employees to maintain our high levels of support to our clients. We have shifted our process to nearly completely virtual for all hiring. To view a full list of job openings and review any further hiring process updates related to the pandemic, please visit our Careers page.
“As we all adjust and adapt to our work practices, it is very refreshing to see and hear the positive spirits of people and the incredible amount of work that everyone is accomplishing.
