We’ve all heard it far too often in recent days. COVID-19 (aka The Coronavirus) – A sweeping epidemic that has brought with it a tornado of illness, death, and economic devastation on a global scale. There’s no arguing that we are in the middle of a global crisis. Entire countries have shut down and many cities and states here in the US have shut down to try and help slow the spread of this incredibly contagious virus.
Here in central Florida, we sit in the center of a hospitality hub. Thousands of people make their livings serving others in theme parks, restaurants, bars, hotels, and conventions. Not to mention our many, MANY business owners– both large and small.
As of today, more and more people in this area have suffered job loss, layoffs with no wages coming in for an undisclosed period of time due to this virus. Some have been displaced completely. It’s no secret that this virus has taken a toll on our unemployment rates and that most of our businesses will suffer greatly for this thing that is outside of our control.
Take a look at this emotional video presented to the Marriott International employees by their acting CEO, Arne Sorenson who is also battling cancer. In this video, he outlines what this pandemic has done to this 91-year-old global organization:https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=623249921859006
In these times and during social distancing, it’s easy to feel all alone in this challenge. Please try to remember that we are in this together.
Maybe you’re one of the many who find themselves laid off with little to no warning. Or, maybe you have lost your job completely due to COVID-19. Perhaps you’re a business owner who has lost the ability to keep up with the work demands your business now faces during this crisis. Because of this, you may find yourself in need of temporary or permanent employees to fill the gaps. Being an “essential business” who is understaffed during this trying time can cause significant damage to your reputation and your bottom line.
Whichever you identify with, please don’t lose hope.
