7 SUGGESTIONS FOR APPRECIATING PEOPLE DURING THIS PANDEMIC
 

People may be physically separated. But they’re likely going above and beyond as much or more than ever. Here are some practical ideas for recognizing and inspiring them.



 

 

DOING THE RIGHT THING

From supporting employees to creative philanthropy, here are the latest inspiring ways companies are stepping up.

CLOSED WITH COMPASSION


Lululemon is closing all of their stores in North America and Europe through March 27. However, they’ll still pay all of their retail employees for the hours they were scheduled to work.

DOUBLING DOWN ON RECOGNITION


Almost hourly, we hear from clients, especially in hard-hit industries, about how recognition and appreciation are more important than ever. We’re humbled and inspired by how they recognize their employee’s hard work during hard times.

FREE SKILLS


LinkedIn is providing 16 of its learning courses for free. The courses cover tips on how to stay productive, build relationships remotely, use virtual meeting tools, and balance family and work dynamics.

SLICE WITH A SIDE OF SAFETY


The &Pizza company is offering free, unlimited pizzas to employees and their families, as well as hospital workers. The company is also raising hourly pay by $1 and giving 14 days of “health and safety pay” to employees who test positive for COVID-19 or who come in contact with someone infected.

KEEPING THE INTERNET ON


Comcast, Charter, Google, T-Mobile, Sprint, TDS Telecom, and Verizon have signed a pledge to keep Americans connected to the Internet for the next 60 days, even if they can’t afford to pay.
