Our top priority is the health, safety, and wellbeing of all Koch company employees, their families, and the communities in which we operate. Throughout the pandemic, Koch Industries has been offering support and guidance to 130,000 employees across the globe. We have dedicated teams and an internal company website—led by Koch’s Matador Security Company—that are committed to updating and providing virus-related information and resources to ensure employees have the best and most current knowledge available. We are following strict CDC guidelines, practicing social distancing, increasing sanitizing stations, and working with our custodial staff to make sure our facilities are cleaned and sanitized. Our IT teams have streamlined remote work and are providing resources and tools to help employees working from home. We have also worked with insurance providers to extend benefits and ease costs associated with COVID testing.
In a USA Today opinion piece, Koch Industries Chairman and CEO Charles Koch and Stand Together CEO Brian Hooks remind us that openness and innovation have always been the American way. And they empower us to overcome the current challenge.
