It’s difficult to describe the countless ways the coronavirus pandemic has turned life upside down. For many of us, each day feels like we’re stuck in some strange limbo waiting for things to “get back to normal” – what that looks like has yet to be determined.
Some of us have been working and/or teaching kids from home for weeks. Many of us are now without jobs or cut off from family and friends. Others have become full-time caretakers for affected loved ones. Still others are working on the frontlines to care for the sick and keep all of us fed and safe.
It’s easy to get caught up in the swirl of negative headlines – but there are still positive things happening every day. To bring some good vibes to your news feed, we rounded up 10 inspiring stories culled from our own research and a HARO query (from that alone we received 100 responses of companies doing good in the pandemic!).
Like good neighbors, businesses have come together in so many remarkable ways. Companies and the people that run them are giving back when our world needs it most, and that’s a piece of this strange and stressful time that we’ll carry with us. Thank you to all the organizations mentioned above for ensuring that empathy, compassion and ingenuity are a part of our future.
What about your company? Do you have a story to share about how your organization is helping during this health crisis? Post how you’re giving back on social and be sure to tag @iCIMS. We’d love to share the good news.
