Staying Disciplined & Optimistic about 2021
This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused enormous deaths, hospitalizations, isolation and economic hardship across Ontario, Canada and around the globe. In the process this pandemic has significantly changed the way each of us live our daily lives. Our thoughts are with the families impacted and the front-line workers working around the clock to help those in need.
At Massey Capital, we operate out of 8 premises located in Southern Ontario. Ensuring the safety of our employees continues to be our highest priority. To date, we have had no COVID-19 cases in any of our premises. We would like to extend our sincere thank you to our +250 staff members who continue to stay disciplined to (i) our company health and safety guidelines as well (ii) laws and guidelines pronounced by our federal, provincial and local governments. Given the recent increases in COVID-19 cases, the identification of new virus mutations and the time required to vaccinate the population – we must not drop our guard. We must continue to stay disciplined to our guidelines because we know that the consequences can be deadly.
In 2020, each of our businesses were impacted by the pandemic to various degrees. Despite the fact that each of our businesses were deemed “essential workplaces,” some of our facilities were shut down for short periods of time or operated on reduced work weeks. We recognize that such times were very difficult for our staff members and we would like to extend our sincere thank you to each of them and their families.
In 2020, our management teams in each of our businesses took the opportunity to complete numerous initiatives in sales, marketing, product innovation and operations. The goal was to work hard to help ensure our companies would emerge stronger entering 2021. I would like to extend my sincere thank you for the outstanding dedication of our management teams and their staff – often working tirelessly for months – building better customer experiences and products for our valued clients across North America.
As we look forward to 2021, we have many reasons to be optimistic. Vaccines have been developed, approved and rolled-out faster than the experts had predicted. Vaccinations have started in Ontario and in time cases will decline significantly. The day will come when our lives will return to a new semblance of “normal” and the virus’s power will be deeply diminished.
For 2021, at Massey Capital our two primary goals remain unchanged:
1 – Continue to ensure the health and safety of each of our employees, and
2 – Emerge stronger as an organization from this pandemic.
Let’s remain strictly disciplined about Covid-19 protocols and be optimistic about 2021.
