Going Remote for Betterment
The partners at Smith + Connors have decided to work remotely for the foreseeable future to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus in our community.
We do not believe our government is doing enough to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Ordinary citizens, like us, need to take action for the greater good. To help slow the spread and allow our hospitals and emergency care workers the ability to get a better footing in treating those ill, it feels like an easy decision to have our team work remotely. We understand that we are only at the onset of the health, economic, and societal implications of COVID-19. One of our values is "Betterment: To leave this world better than we found it." That means allowing staff to feel safe, helping to reduce the spread of the virus, and decreasing exposure to at-risk populations.
We feel fortunate to be a business that can easily take our work remote with low consequences. Fellow business owners whose livelihood depends on bringing people together find themselves in a very precarious position. We encourage people to be as generous as possible and to find ways to support each other.
