We have almost made it to May! Hard to believe that we have been living and working this way since mid-March. Your continued and collective efforts to stay healthy are having an impact. While we see many of our state governments assessing phased re-openings, we encourage all to maintain smart social distancing, hygiene and PPE practices as advised.
Here is what we saw this past week:
Expense and cost containment remain critical as the economic realities of businesses and communities being shut down persists. Your vigilance and stewardship related to expenses such as non-essential travel, non-job related credit card usage, overtime usage, hiring freeze for salaried positions, wage freeze, and, in some cases, reductions in work hours all help to balance the negative impact of some projects being delayed or cancelled, customers who defer / delay payments, and reductions in our normal revenue volume levels. Thank you and please continue to operate in this manner. We are examining all options for cost containment.
It is becoming very clear that this situation changes frequently and is full of business and personal challenges. No one said this would be easy. Every decision is being evaluated carefully for short term and long-term impact. We remain POSITIVE and tremendously PROUD of this entire team.
We get through this and, as always, we will continue to update you on the situation as it changes … stay CALM and stay STRONG!
