Companies large and small are learning in real-time how to navigate a new world where employees are working from home, making sacrifices to show up for essential services, or have had their positions reduced or even eliminated due to COVID-19. It’s a challenging time, to say the least, but we are seeing examples of businesses across the country rising to the occasion. From the Warner Brothers Media boss who declared no Friday meetings (because working from home is hard enough without them) to the Texas Roadhouse CEO who is turning his annual salary over to his restaurant employees, every effort to help employees makes a difference. Ingenuity is taking its place in America at this most challenging historical time. It’s no surprise to us that digital and plastic gift cards are playing a role. That’s how companies are helping employees during COVID-19. Case in point, Greenlight Networks:

Greenlight Networks

Based in Rochester, New York, Greenlight Networks build its own fiber connections for their clients, providing an extremely fast and affordable Internet service for a wide range of customers. The company sent DoorDash gift cards to all of their employees to provide meal delivery during quarantine.

Greenlight Networks employees deeply appreciated the DoorDash gift cards. Their virtual lunch hour together provided a welcomed relief and opportunity to bond. Not just that, local restaurants benefitted greatly from the business boost. What a great way to fuel teams and local economies to help everyone get through this difficult time.

“The gift cards went over great!” said Hannah Brennan, Business Development Lead. “Everyone was very appreciative and since we encouraged everyone to use them to order local, we were able to give our community here in Rochester a little support! We also had a ‘virtual lunch hour’ so we had everyone try to take lunch at noon and we used our company messaging system to share what we ordered, reflect on our first work from home week and stay connected! “
