Rare company behavior

Nice to see a company take care of its people and not just the bottom line and share holders. Gave 80 hours of personal/sick time to use whenever needed. $100 a week bonus for four weeks, and double pay for any overtime. To help the folks that are still going to work (and thankfully still can). Also buying as many masks, gloves and other items and giving them to the hospitals. I am proud to work for the HOME DEPOT !!!🇺🇸

These are always great stories to hear. Ran into an AT&T installer in the neighborhood two days ago. He said his company was trying to take care of their employees by allowing work from home where possible and providing essential gear for customer contact employees. To his knowledge no one has been laid off. Early in the game but lots of business' seem to be doing the same thing. My hat is off to those that are.

I know of a little company that has been doing what is best for people for years. If you come to work or you don’t show up, you can take all the time off you wish do whatever you wont to you get paid. They gave out $87,000 to it’s 3 workers last year for Christmas bonus. The owner’s salary last year was $2000. I know all of this because I own the company. I do it because it the right thing to do.

We're still paying health insurance on everyone and employing as many as we can at our store, but not sure how long we can last or if we even can last with only the limited income from the drive thru.

It's good to hear companies help out where they can. They are a business in the end and need to survive as well. Without companies there would be few jobs.

I was in retail for 50 years, retired in 2015. At its peak, I had 180 employees. For the first time in my adult life I'm not worried about how to figure out how to survive the recession, depression, oil embargo, or pandemic.

My retirement income is secure and more than my living expenses. My biggest worry is what I'm going to do today to keep busy and keep my social distance to stay healthy.
