Paradigm sends employees work-from-home COVID care packages.
At the time of this writing, Paradigm’s dedicated staff has been working from home 61 days, due to the COVID-19 situation. That’s more than eight weeks. Or 1,464 hours. Or 87,840 minutes. More than 15 percent of 2020. Not that anybody is counting.
In fact, except for their daily commute, Paradigm’s 255 employees have pretty much managed to maintain business as usual in these unusual times – quietly and without protest.
But when mysterious work-from-home COVID care packages started arriving on doorsteps and in mailboxes throughout the U.S., Canada, and France, employees finally spoke up – and it was an inspiration.
Over a two-day period, Paradigm’s HR department assembled a team to deliver the care packages to each employee through the mail or hand-delivered ding-dong-ditch style (to maintain social distancing). The packages were stuffed with fun tokens of appreciation ranging from a roll of toilet paper and face masks, to snacks and gift cards for local restaurants. An accompanying note of gratitude shined a light on Paradigm’s culture and the commitment to its employees:
Paradigm employees responded in kind with a stream of texts, emails, and social posts. Here’s an uplifting sample of our socially distant staff who have taken care of business for the past 5,270,400 seconds — and counting.
