On Monday, February 22, 2021, Horizon Systems and Services welcomed employees at their new corporate headquarters located at 630 Riverfront Drive, Suite 200, Sheboygan, WI 53081. We moved into our newly furnished 6,000 sq. ft office on March 1, 2020, and three weeks later, sent employees home to work remotely, commented Kathy Schuette, Director Administrative Services. The excitement was short lived in our new office space, but being a software company, it was easy for our employees to make the transaction (at least technology wise) to work from home.
The decision to return to the office was based on Sheboygan County COVID-19 cases dropping below 200 and schools and business reopening in the area. Horizon will continue to follow the CDC’s protocol with hand washing, sanitizers, temperature checks, social distancing, and masks required when moving around the office, and using simple common sense. If experiencing COVID symptoms, remain at home and get tested. Protecting the health and safety of our employees is our main concern.
