Draft Canada wants to know: How is COVID-19 impacting your business? How are you dealing with the pandemic?Jackie Gill - March 25, 2020
The novel coronavirus is here, and it’s no joke. When we posted this article, it had claimed the lives of 25 people and contaminated almost 1,800 in Canada alone. Worldwide, over 18,000 have died and there are almost 415,000 confirmed cases, according to the World Health Organization.
Our health and the health our friends, families and employees have to be our number one priority. It’s why we’re seeing the rise in social isolation and social distancing, and why companies around the globe are making the home office their “new normal.”
No doubt you’ve seen memes about remote work – and sometimes, humour is the best way to deal with a crisis. But the issue is serious. Along with threatening our public health, we’re facing an enormous economic disruption, too. Every day, we hear about factories sending workers home, shops closing their doors and restaurants pushing to make deliveries.
What we need most right now? Patience… and action. Quick, creative, effective and supporting solutions. This is why Draft Canada wants to hear from you: because you’re a game-changer, and the game is changing fast.
In times of crisis, stories matter more than ever. That’s why we’ve prepared a survey to better understand how COVID-19 is impacting your business, and how you are responding to it. We’ll put responses together into a series of stories to share information, experiences and strategies that inspire more people to face whatever tomorrow brings with their heads held high.
