Unemployment staff across the nation is working long hours to support the millions of Americans that have lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the overwhelming workload, many are struggling to find the time to support their families fully, which includes time to shop for hard to find essentials like cleaning supplies.
In an effort to support their staff the Unemployment Insurance Call Center in Lombard, Illinois has created a “care table” that allows employees to share these hard to find essentials. Employees contribute whatever items they find and take whatever they need. This spirit of sharing not only supports these employees as they working tirelessly to support the job seeker communities in their state but also exemplifies the spirit of our workforce community.
We would like to recognize the Lombard Unemployment Insurance Call Center for their dedication to their workforce and thank them, and all workforce professionals, for their tireless efforts on the front line of this unprecedented time for our workforce community.
If you have an example of efforts in your community aimed at providing support during the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to hear from you!
