The Road We Walk Together
With the severe nature of the Coronavirus, our intended is to provide Minnesota business leaders with a perspective, knowledge, and resources on the evolving state of affairs and implications for their companies.
To help business leaders manage the impact of COVID-19, we have created the Getting Minnesota Back to Work resource page. On this page, you can find a full webinar and various resources for getting your organization back to pre-coronavirus operating capacities.

AWARD STAFFING’S POLICIES
As we plan to support businesses with their temporary employee needs we have implemented the downloadable ‘Return from Confirmed COVID-19 Illness or Symptoms’ policy.
Our policy follows the signs and symptom protocols outlined by the CDC to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 to ensure health and workplace safety.
IN THE NEWS
In the current highering market, the most crucial asset to your company is its reputation. In too many cases, companies have seen their reputations damaged by news stories about workers performing job functions in non-safe environments.
Don’t let your business’s reputation become tarnished like these local news stories.
Anyone who made under $60,000 year, or about $28 per hour, is making more money to stay-at-home. In the Twin-cities and metro are markets we are seeing that entry-level and mid-skilled talent are making 30% to 75% more than previously working.
Even though we did not cover topics related to the SBA Loans and Paycheck Protection Act, we wanted to provide some form of guidance and direction still.
Our first recommendation is that for these items, you, please contact your Bank or Accounting Firm. Our second recommendation is to download the SBA’s frequently asked questions document below for any other questions that you may have.
