Emergency Situation Statement

September 22, 2016 | TalentBridge News

UPDATED 9/22/2016- 5:30pm

At this time a State of Emergency still remains in Charlotte NC although there has been no declaration of a curfew tonight or a continuation of the SOM for tomorrow, according to CMPD.  What we do know is that additional resources have been deployed in order to try and keep order in our fine city.  Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of communication from or clients at this hour. 

As a general guideline, associates whose primary work location is in Uptown Charlotte should try and communicate directly with their CLIENT SUPERVISOR for instructions concerning office closings and/or their option to work at alternative locations.  If you are not setup to work remotely or at an alternative location (and your work location is Uptown Charlotte), you are not required to travel to Uptown during this State of Emergency.

We will continue to update our communication (via email and our website www.talentbridgeusa.com) as things continue to evolve.  We would recommend WSOC NEWS as they broke company closures first this morning.

 Thank you for your dedicated service to TalentBridge and our clients.

Peace,

Here is a statement from our president on the current emergency situation in our area. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. If you feel you are in immediate danger dial 911.

All,

As many of you are aware, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory issued a state of emergency after violence erupted Wednesday night in Center City Charlotte. This morning, the North Carolina National Guard arrived in an effort to restore normalcy in our fine city.  Just now, we have seen some communications from our clients online Duke Energy, BoA, and Wells Fargo:

  • Wells Fargo: “Due to the recent events and the declared state of emergency in Charlotte, Wells Fargo team members in Uptown are not required to report to work Thursday, September 22,” an email from Wells Fargo to its employees read.

With other clients we remain unsure.  All associates are encouraged to reach out to their direct supervisors for direction regarding their assignment. Rest assured that our first concern is for the safety of all Talent Bridge associates.  Government officials are monitoring the current Charlotte climate closely and we will continue to update our communication (via email and our website www.talentbridgeusa.com) as things continue to evolve.

Thank you for your dedicated service to TalentBridge and our clients.

Peace,

Bradford C. Violette
President
