In just a few short weeks, the 46th annual National EMS Week will be upon us. During the week of May 17-23, communities nationwide will be finding new ways to show their love and support for their local EMS workers.
Even though we can’t celebrate with a large awards ceremony or rambunctious picnic this year, there are still ways to show that your community appreciates the dedication and bravery of its EMS workers.
Whether your business is open, or closed, or everyone is working remotely, this COVID-19 pandemic is making our lives interesting. I wish there was a quick cure for this virus. There will be a cure, but in the mean time, we just need to wash our hands, and keep our physical distance from other people.
Another issue is the psychological effect on your work force during this lock down. How do you make your employees happy, and help them through this?
Stay in contact with them. Let them know you are there for them, and you are affected as severely as they are.
Remind your employees that this situation is just temporary. When the daily new cases of infection becomes zero, we will all rejoice.
Give them a symbol of your gratitude. Give them company logo knives with your corporate logo and a catch phrase like “Thanks For Your Service–2020”
