Key Ideas

Smart generosity concept applied inside the companies

Because of the current pandemic, companies have had to re-evaluate their purpose. This is to say that smart companies apply the smart generosity concept, according to which employees and stakeholders come before the shareholders. It is worth mentioning that the central part in all this goes to the employees, as they are the ones ensuring the good functioning of the company.

Companies' response to the pandemic

While facing the difficulties that the new virus is making companies all over the world fight against, there are several employers out there who seem to really know what they are doing. Companies of all types are helping researchers, suppliers and not only to help slow down the spread of the virus.

Re-evaluating the company's purpose

Once the new virus will have passed and we will all have safely returned to our lives, it might be useful to bear in mind what this situation has taught us. Especially if you own a company, you might want to consider putting your employees first, stakeholders, customers, citizens and so on. And do not forget: through cooperation and kindness, we can actually stand a chance when confronted with such dangers.

Immunity vs. privacy

Getting the worldwide economy back on track requires workforce. Providing this workforce requires healthy individuals able to work hard enough to help things get better. Governments are now trying out ways to officially have people's health checked: by providing different types of certificates, for instance. The major concern, however, is in regards to everybody's privacy: while these certificates do prove our immunity, research institutions are working on developing tools that can also protect our data.

Certifying immunity and its advantages

It might be that only by certifying workers' immunity, states can help their economy know growth again. However, in order to make the people who get certified take up positions that require direct contact with customers, there will be a need for encouragement from employers' side, such as pay raises. As this is maybe the only real option, countries worldwide are going to have to apply the method.

Plan ahead

Before you shop for the self-isolation period:

  • Consider the foods your family likes, your food preparation methods and the time and energy you will have for preparing meals.

While at the supermarket

... during the pandemic:

  • Use disinfecting wipes for your hands and grocery cart handle, and then make sure you put the wipe in the trash.
  • Supermarkets are running low on many items. Be ready with a back-up plan if an ingredient you need is unavailable.
  • Use contactless payment or credit cards. If you have to use the payment keypad, tap the buttons and screen with your knuckle then use hand sanitizer after completing your payment.
  • Contribute to local pantries and soup kitchens, to help the less fortunate.

Eating together at home

Make meals at home a positive and fun experience:

  • Get the whole family involved. Kids can help set the table or pour the water, make the salad.
  • Try some new easy recipes, that require a few ingredients.
  • Reconnect with the family: eat together at the table or spread a blanket on the floor and have an indoor picnic.
