Note by CEO, Refilwe Marumo.
During this Covid-19 pandemic many a business has fallen on hardest times, with small businesses being the hardest hit. I can only imagine the level of stress and sleepless nights many owners are going through. Theirs, a headache that comes not only with unpaid office rent and overdue creditors and salaries they can hardly meet, but also many households that their employees are feeding because behind every employee, is about 5 months to feed.
So it was pleasant and much welcome relief when my employees threw me a surprise birthday breakfast this past week, during a time when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, lock myself away and not be any ones boss, given the above mentioned challenges.
Bosses are human too, and I know there are some nasty ones out there—but please spare a thought, most are going through the worst of times trying to keep the ship afloat. If you’re one of those who has a good manner, a good boss—go out there and let them know much they’re appreciated. Trust me, it will go a long way in assuring them that the fight is worth it.
A big thank you to the @Mighty_Comms Team for this reminder. God bless you.
