Safety for our employees and our communities is a key priority for Genesys. We continue to experience rapid growth during the Covid-19 pandemic and are conducting remote hiring and onboarding processes. All hiring and onboarding processes are being conducted remotely at this time.

Genesys encourages everyone who can get vaccinated to get vaccinated; it’s the most empathetic thing we can do for our own health and the health of those around us. At this time, Genesys does not require new hires be fully vaccinated. However, where legally permissible, Genesys will only welcome vaccinated employees back to Genesys Offices as these reopen. Those who are not vaccinated at that time may continue to work remotely if the nature of their job allows it. Customer-facing employees will need to follow customer guidelines.
