The number of people infected by Covid-19, a new strain of the Coronavirus, in the United States is on the incline. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have published clear outlines of measures people can take to avoid the spread of the disease, and keep themselves, and their families safe.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses around the globe are having to change the way they operate in order to keep their employees safe. Honest Paws, a pet CBD wellness company, has been quick to set up important measures providing benefits to their staff during this trying time. The company is doing what it can to help flatten the curve and assist its employees during this unprecedented time of social distancing. The company prioritizes both doing their part to curb the spread of the virus, as well as ensuring safety and stability for all employees and their livelihoods.
One of the main approaches to fighting the spread of Covid-19 Honest Paws has taken, is to shift to a “work from home” policy for all of its employees. In addition to asking employees to work remotely, the company has also begun implementing flexible working hours to accommodate those with children, and those living in different time zones. Working from home and self-isolating, is one of the best ways to avoid the spread of Covid-19.
In addition, Honest Paws has implemented the following measures to care for its employees:
Work from Home Allowance: Honest Paws is providing upwards of $700 to each employee to purchase any supplies they need during this transition period. The wellbeing of Honest Paws employees is a priority for the company, who wants to ensure that their employees have access to cash flow during this time of uncertainty and instability.
Unlimited PTO: Honest Paws is offering unlimited paid time off to all of their full-time employees, whether it is due to illness or other reasons. This policy is particularly important to anyone who has contracted the disease. Honest Paws wants to ensure that their employees are taken care of during these turbulent times and that they don’t have to worry about their income when they need to take time off work.
Bring Your Kids to Work: Honest Paws is encouraging employees to make everyday a bring your kids to work day. This new policy of course includes fur babies, because pets are family too. Schools are closed, and working parents often aren’t in a position to juggle working in the office and taking care of their children who are at home. Honest Paws wants parents to feel comfortable having their kids sit in with them on any and all meetings and calls.
Honest Paws is taking the situation very seriously and is prioritizing keeping everyone safe while doing their best to keep operations going. In this time of economic uncertainty, the company is doing what it can to create a sense of stability in the workplace. They have acted swiftly and with precision to ensure everyone involved in the business’ daily operations has the support they need. This virus is having a far-reaching impact and Honest Paws is doing what they can to help soften the blow.
“We hope that by doing our part, we’re minimizing the negative effects of COVID-19 and supporting our employees during this trying time.” – Erik Rivera, CEO of Honest Paws.
Seeing the company implement these measures should be an inspiration to other companies who still need to adjust the way they operate their businesses. It all comes down to saving lives, and that is exactly what Honest Paws is doing.
