This all begins with a virtual onboarding experience that ensures every step of your RELEX onboarding journey is clear and interactive. RELEX has an internal learning management system to ensure your training sessions are easy to access and thoughtful. RELEX offers a flexible working schedule and completely supports the work and home balance, especially when remote working is the recommendation. RELEX US headquarters is open for those that need, but managed by a capacity sign up system and is completely optional to visit at this time. The office is equipped with a UV lighting system, daily cleaning, 6ft+ apart desk arrangement and sanitizing stations so that if you feel you are most productive in an office setting, you have a safe place to work. Because of our great remote working video and meeting options, any travel is not recommended for our employees at least until July 2021. We believe we can serve our clients successfully working and collaborating remotely, although look forward to the time in the future where we can have that in-person collaboration again.
