Ford has joined an impressive roster of Canadian businesses for a national initiative called POST Promise.
It is designed to help protect Canadians as they return to public spaces and workplaces.
Launched in June, thousands of businesses across Canada have already made the POST Promise, with more joining every day. Each business commits to following five key actions that were developed in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada to help prevent the spread of COVID 19. These actions include: maintaining physical distancing; staying home if unwell; wearing a mask when required and practicing respiratory etiquette; cleaning and disinfecting regularly; and, washing and sanitizing hands. Businesses that make the promise are then able to display the POST Promise logo in their storefront. A clear indication to employees and customers that they are doing their part to protect Canadians’ health and safety.
Ford of Canada has joined the initiative as a Founding Partner and has encouraged its dealer network across the country to consider making the “POST Promise”, to support the initiative and the necessary 5 key actions of the POST Promise platform. Participating dealers will proudly display the POST Promise logo in prominent locations throughout their stores.
“POST is thrilled to have the support of Ford of Canada and its dealer network,” said Laura Hearn, President & Executive Director of the POST Promise. “By taking a leadership role with this critical initiative, Ford is demonstrating its unyielding commitment to keeping its customers and staff safe during this unsettling time, as well as being a good corporate citizen for the sake of all Canadians. I hope that other large Canadian companies will be inspired to also join this national movement.”
