Our world is in upheaval at the moment and the only thing more tiresome than messages about COVID-19 is that we are faced with this crisis at all. We trust you and your families are staying safe and weathering this storm in the best way possible.
I want to take a moment to let you know the status of IMPACT during this time. We will update this page as the state of the situation changes.
IMPACT Remains Operational
We are in a unique position to continue helping organizations with their messaging and marketing needs throughout the pandemic lockdown and to help prepare for the eventual re-opening of businesses. It is our mission to help as many individuals and organizations come out of this time in a better position than they entered it. We are committed to keeping our employees employed, paying our taxes, and potentially hiring more employees and contractors in the coming weeks and months.
Keeping Employees and Customers Safe
IMPACT has always had a distributed workforce, meaning, we all work from home or remote offices. Most of our employee and client meetings are virtual, using video conferencing technology. All face-to-face meetings have been canceled or shifted to virtual mediums until further notice.
Flexibility of Scope
Our client work is laid out a year in advance with the assumption that there will not be a global shutdown. (!) With the crisis-imposed shift in the focus of marketing and communication messages and the additional burden of responsibilities on communications and marketing offices, we recognize some of our scope will also shift or be delayed. We are adapting our campaigns to the current needs of our clients and will rollover any unused scope to the next contractual year.
Support for Struggling Organizations
While we are optimistic and believe in the possibilities for organizations to transform and grow during times of crisis, we acknowledge that some businesses and nonprofits will not survive this time. Some will, but face a major transition of their business to continue offering their products and services to their communities. Others have the reserves to survive, but have put off their innovative ideas to meet and exceed today’s standards of brand awareness online.
No matter where you are in the mix, we are here to help. Use our virtual assistant, MIA, to book a free brainstorming session with one of our consultants. If you want, you can simply use this time to have us look at what you have in progress and give you some direction.
We are sending you our best wishes and hope you will thrive among the renewed and deepened family connections, improved communications, and both personal and business transformation.
