We’ve all seen the headlines of what businesses are doing to combat the spread of novel Coronavirus.
One of the silver linings of the COVID-19 pandemic is seeing individuals and companies find ways to continue serving their communities despite the insurmountable challenges. From taking donations to fund a restaurant’s serving staff, to creating special business hours for at-risk groups, there are a number of ways to make an impact broader than the crisis itself.
Cloud has some wonderful clients partaking in this initiative to stay “on the front lines” and serve hope to their customers in a time of great need.
The retailer pledged to launch drive-thru testing sites at its nationwide stores, with the first opening on Thursday, March 19 in a Massachusetts town. CVS is currently using its own employees to staff these sites and will hire to provide additional support.
CVS is also hiring 50,000 employees to help fill these needs, as well as giving its current employees bonuses of up to $500 as a show of appreciation.
The discount variety store with a 14,000-plus location footprint is innovating in a number of ways, including:
Dollar General is also hiring for store, distribution, and fleet positions.
Christian Brothers Automotive
Christian Brothers, based in Houston, TX and with a 210+ store footprint across the nation, is serving its customers by offering to pick up and return their vehicles to their homes. In an industry that serves a broad demographic, this could prove to be a critical way to bring in business and limit transmission (no pun intended). Franchisees are participating in this initiative to serve specific communities that are being heavily impacted by the virus.
Famous for its to-go coffee, roller foods, and Slurpees, 7-Eleven is hiring 20,000 employees during the COVID-19 pandemic to help meet demands for its products. In-store upgrades such as installing sneezeguards at registers are just one of the measures being taken to protect the community.
Leveraging their previous on-demand delivery service, 7NOW, as well as delivery through DoorDash, customers can still access their favorite snacks and beverages.
Additionally, 7-Eleven recently donated 1 million masks to FEMA in response to growing needs.
Domino’s is hiring 15,000 employees across its U.S. footprint to provide jobs to those in need, promoting their carry-out services while cities shut down dining rooms.
