A Bit of Blue Sky


A Bit of Blue Sky

Companies that serve the populace are hiring, in the face of the pandemic. Do they know something we don’t? We have had a number of ‘help wanted’ ads come in and they are posted on line. Some companies in our industry are preparing now for the recovery. Parking Today has hired two people in the last week. We see this as a time to train, prepare, and look for new and ‘outside the box’ ideas.

The next few months will be challenging. The “same old, same old” probably won’t cut it. Now is a great time to consider new approaches, to reach out to your employees, vendors, and customers and renew acquaintances you have let lie fallow. Now is the perfect time to talk to your staff on a daily basis and support them in their daily activities.

I have been around this bend a number of times and although it is cliché, this too will pass. The companies that will come out of this better and stronger are those that work through it. The ones that move forward, even if with baby steps.

This crisis has come on us very quickly. Less than six weeks ago, it didn’t exist. My guess is that it will leave just as quickly. Yes, there will be damage in its wake, but remember, things are never as good nor as bad as we predict.

Of one thing you can be sure, Parking Today is here, we are publishing both in print and on line, and we are a vehicle you can use to reach your vendors, staff and customers. Feel free to contact me with any ideas you have to help spread the word about you, your organization, and your industry.

Astrid is working feverishly to publish news releases on parknews.biz about what you are doing, your successes, and innovations. Just let us know.

Be safe out there
