A Letter from Doug Del Grosso

CEO Doug Del Grosso discusses Adient’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic

December 2021

Nearly two years ago, the world and the auto industry began battling the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, we put stringent health and safety procedures into place to protect our employees, customers and suppliers.

Looking back, the Adient leadership team is extremely proud of the way our employees embraced these measures, and new ways of working, to keep our company at the forefront of effective safety protocols. The flexibility and dedication of our global team allowed us to emerge from this crisis and get back to business quickly.

Providing employees with a safe workplace has always been Adient’s top priority. We continue to make necessary adjustments to our health and safety procedures based on recommended best practices from global health agencies. These are outlined in this guide, which includes our employee well-being policy, virus prevention practices and cleaning checklists and schedules.

Please familiarize yourself with these guidelines. We will update this document to reflect changes in procedures and introduce new recommended best practices as they become available. Your manager will share more detailed information specific to your facility and will be available to answer any questions.

We could not have imagined how our lives — both personally and professionally — would be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. By working together, we successfully managed this challenging environment. Following the procedures outlined here will be key to our continued success.

Thank you for your support. May you and your families remain healthy.

Doug Del Grosso
President and CEO
