BUSINESS STRATEGIES:

Our employees and their families need to be safe. They also need jobs. How we as a community respond impacts both.

Your employees may not be elderly, have a chronic underlying condition (lung or heart disease or diabetes), or have a compromised immune system. But they may be the caregiver for someone who does.

Having a plan ensures your employees that you are acting in their best interest as well as the company’s.
