The coronavirus saga has us all in a tizzy.
And while the stock markets drop, and the cancellation of schools and major events grab most of the headlines, the news crew at Richmond BizSense is trying to get a full grasp on how this is all trickling down to the local business community.
It’s no easy feat, and we thought the best way to tell as many of these stories as possible is to go straight to the source.
So now the call to action: We’d love to hear from as many local businesses, managers, employees and the like as possible in order to learn how companies large and small are handling the logistics of the coronavirus scare.
We invite you to post a comment in the comments section below to start the dialogue.
The goal here is to inform, share ideas and best practices, and hopefully help ease each other’s fears a bit by knowing none of us are experiencing this alone in a vacuum. The comments will be monitored to make sure they stay on topic, so please don’t be bashful.
Regardless of the industry or size of the business, please consider sharing details such as:
- + If you’re a manager, let folks know about the tough decisions you’re making and why.
- + If you’re an employee, have you been ordered to work from home or is it business as usual?
- + If you’re a working parent, tell us how you’re balancing things now that schools and daycares are shutting down.
- + What are workplaces doing to keep up morale?
Everyone seems to be handling it differently, and we’d love your help to paint as complete a picture as possible for the region.
It’s easy to think by reading the news that everything is shutting down. But life goes on, as must many businesses. We hope you’ll consider sharing your story.
