Once the Canada-US border eases – there are plans to work with businesses in both countries, in an effort to ensure the highest standards of health safety for workers.
Founder, Barbara Szeman, is hopeful that more businesses in the Windsor-Essex region will seek out her company’s services. Part of that plan includes a new division of the company called “Pulsar Health” – dedicated to addressing the needs of private and public sector clients.
"We've always been evolving our business and so we have been opening up to unique situations,” said Szeman.
“We have been in contact with people who have weddings coming up who are questioning our services, family members who want to get together and feel a little safer doing so, essentially. So we're open to the needs of the public."
