TRIPLE III TIME: Reverse Accommodation?

This TRIPLE III TIME message is difficult to write…possibly difficult to understand…and maybe even difficult to agree with…but my “community of commerce” sense prompts me to finish my thoughts.

Hopefully we have gone past the prime of COVID negatives.  And during the last year or so we have asked a lot from the business and service industries regarding accommodations…right?  Having employees work remotely.  Spacing tables at six feet apart.  Putting up shields to stop infectious particles.  Purchasing tons of cleaning materials and masks.  Reducing the number allowed in certain franchises at any given time.  There are probably many more specific ones…but these seem to be the main required accommodations.  The result was lost work, revenue, customers and in some cases company closings.  Extremely tough times.

But today this TRIPLE III TIME message wants you to consider…are workers/employees prepared to help and make Reverse Accommodations?  What do I mean?  I am thinking about staffs coming in to work a little early and staying a little later…just to help.  Possibly helping in another area of work besides their own to help the company.  And not fighting the importance of returning to work…IN PERSON…because my experiences says it matters.

During these recovery times it is vital to help local businesses rebuild, rejuvenate and become more competitive in their area.  Their ability to stay open, be prosperous means more jobs for you and those coming after you.

People talk a lot about “getting back to normal”.  Well that means not taking advantage of COVID era world of work “accommodations” and assuming personal responsibility relating to your job, your opportunity to work and how things would change if those opportunities disappeared.
