How We're Working During COVID

Deeplocal is focused on keeping our employees safe and informed during COVID. Beginning in  February 2020 until now, our physical office has been closed or open at a greatly reduced capacity. The majority of our employees are working from home; only employees who need equipment in the office or in our fabrication facility are going into our physical spaces. For employees who are visiting the office, we’ve put in place strict diagnostic procedures (including mask-wearing) that all employees are following. With roughly 20,000 square feet of space and typically fewer than 10 employees in the office, social distancing is safe and easy.

Our team transitioned to this flexible working situation quickly and easily, as we were already used to using remote collaboration tools on a daily basis such as Slack, Google Drive, 15Five, and others. While future policy changes are still in the works, we are committed to retaining employee flexibility moving forward and prioritizing the safety of our team members above all else.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
