As we face the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, now considered a once-a-century crisis, I was compelled to write this note to those who have supported Willory over the years.
First and foremost, I hope that you are staying safe, healthy, and patient as we look to combat the impacts of the virus and flatten the curve. This is a serious matter as lives are at stake, and it’s imperative we all do our part to keep our society as safe as possible.
With that said, there has never been such an unexpected and dramatic stress on the global economy with significant impacts on the US economy. Millions have lost their jobs, companies are mobilizing remote work set up for their workforce (in hours for some companies), organizations are cutting costs, and industries have been mandated to close. The stress on the American worker is real.
