“We are facing a human crisis unlike any we have experienced. Our social fabric is under stress. Companies should focus on scaling up production, making sure supply chains are alive and reliable, retaining workforce and engaging young people.”
– Amina J. Mohammed, UN Deputy-Secretary-General.
Just a few months into 2020, the world as we knew it altered. With the rapid advance of COVID-19, a newly discovered Coronavirus, suddenly we all started living in a dystopian version of our previous lives. The crisis has disrupted the global workforce in an unprecedented way. Every business has had to adapt quickly. Some have seen sales go up, where others have had to close overnight as governments step in to enforce new rules and keep the spread of the virus down. Agility, compassion and the willingness to grow – despite the uncertainty – is paramount. The ‘new normal’ changes every day, and every business must continually adapt to meet the demands of customers and keep employees safe.
Now is the time for resilience, reflection and reconstruction. JEM is proud to be a part of that resilience, making sure that our client’s supply chains continue unbroken.
“The number one thing to focus on is employees and customers. Keep them well, keep them employed and keep them mentally healthy.”
– Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America and Chair of the World Economic Forum’s International Business Council.
