Quarterly Client Newsletter Recap
Telecommuting Policy Ensures Uninterrupted Service
Update 6.22.20: ISTS’ headquarters will remain closed until at least July 31. All employees are telecommuting.
ISTS’ headquarters in Nashville remains open for normal business hours for employees who choose to work onsite and we have expanded our existing telecommuting policy to ensure any employee who is uncomfortable coming to the office can successfully telecommute. At this time, administration of your program, availability of our online application system and support for your program participants will not be affected. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your Program Manager.
