In a time of uncertainty, there's nothing more reassuring than knowing you and your family are being taken care of. Which is why a Toronto developer is offering its employees and their families with the resources they need to stay healthy during this challenging time.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact every industry in the city, Fitzrovia Real Estate announced it will be providing its employees and their family members were free access to virtual healthcare.
"These are extraordinarily challenging times and it is important that we work together to navigate through the unknown of COVID-19. To our contractors and your employees, your health is our priority. We want to assure you that we are listening and continue to collaborate on best practices to keep you healthy," said Fitzrovia's CEO, Adrian Rocca, in a statement.
Fitzrovia will now be offering free virtual healthcare through its corporate partnership with Cleveland Clinic Canada, one of North America’s leading private health care facilities, to all direct site staff and their immediate families, effective as of April 6, 2020.
All fees in connection with this virtual clinic service will be covered by Fitzrovia for the next four months.
According to Fitzrovia, the service can be accessed from any electronic device, seven days a week from 7 am to 7 pm EST and will offer employees with world-class medical advice, diagnosis and prescriptions that can be sent to the pharmacy of the user's choosing.
Fitzrovia joins the growing list of companies that are stepping up to help their most important asset — people.
Last week it was revealed a Toronto landlord told his tenants not to pay rent for the foreseeable future in addition to offering free supplies like medicine and groceries to tenants struggling to afford the basics.
Prior to that, Greenrock Real Estate Advisors, an end-to-end real-estate, commercial, and residential property management company, announced it would be putting forward a $500,000 cash commitment to support its residents and local communities with things like paying for groceries to their upcoming rent.
