These are crazy times. I wrote a LinkedIn post about what my partner, Claire, is seeing at her company - a lot of her clients are standing staff down, moving them to part time, or letting them go altogether. There's a bit of a blood bath going on out there in the workplace, and times are uncertain.
The mission of industry leaders such as Geoffrey Mann, an RMIT lecturer & tech startup founder, to drive the economy forward through these shutdowns is one we identify heavily with. Within a recent article in "The Shift", a publication that chronicles business and tech transforming the future economy, Geoffrey says:
"There's [..] a lot of people isolated and anything that can help them with employment and kind of getting their normal lives back to normal is really important."- Geoffrey Mann, "Startups front-up to COVID" - The Shift
