How Whirlpool Corporation responded
As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to impact all of us around the world, there is no doubt how each of our everyday lives have fundamentally changed. Still, despite how different today feels, a constant remains — how we all care for each other, our families and our communities. All of us at Whirlpool Corporation understand how incredibly important this is, and as families are being confined to their homes and are depending more and more on their appliances to get them through this difficult time, we are focused on showing up to serve.
At Whirlpool, our vision is to be the best kitchen and laundry company, in constant pursuit of improving life at home – and at times like this, it is more critical than ever that we live by that vision each and every day for the benefit of our employees, consumers and communities.
We understand that we play an essential role in the efforts to contain this virus and do not take that role lightly. Our manufacturing plants remain open and are working to produce the refrigerators, dishwashers, and cooking and laundry appliances that are needed to keep people safe at home, but also support our healthcare workers who do their heroic work on a daily basis.
The health and safety of our employees around the world remain our top priority – we know that we couldn’t do any of this without their tireless commitment. We have implemented the proper safeguards in our plants in line with the guidelines provided by the CDC and other health organizations around the world, and continuously monitor and adjust on a daily basis.
