Message from Our CEO-Moving Forward with Purpose, Hope & Gratitude
While this month marks one year since Covid-19 caused disruption in most of our lives. The great social experiment of the Covid-19 lockdown will be studied for decades to come. How did it impact our lives, our work, our sense of self? We are only beginning to come to grips with the answer.
However, it also marks one year of adapting and pushing through many challenges. We have had to pivot with the rest of the world and learn how to move forward. As we’ve pushed through the uncertainty, we have met countless opportunities to reflect, refine, realign and revisit what we are doing and move forward with a renewed sense of purpose, hope and gratitude.
Despite the darkness of the past 12 months, there are now signs of hope and recovery. We saw businesses rapidly innovate to keep food, services, and goods flowing during lockdowns. Companies have stepped up to the plate to support non-profits serving those in need. In one of the great triumphs of modern science, multiple vaccines have been developed in record time. We are beginning to see a few states open up and lifting Covid-19 restrictions and giving these businesses the okay to reopen at 100%.
As we continue to move into 2021, change will continue to happen. Maybe at a slower rate or perhaps be even quicker. Businesses needs to prepare for the unexpected. If we are to learn anything from 2020, it’s to almost expect the unexpected.
I hope you, your family and all of your loved ones continue to stay healthy and safe. Remember to take care of each other, as we all push forward into 2021.
Be Blessed and Be Safe!
R. Kevin Jackson
