PORTLAND, Ore. – MAY 12, 2020 – At Logical Position, we take immense pride in everything we do for our clients and our local communities. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our daily lives and the global economy, we wanted to take a moment to look back on everything that was accomplished in our first quarter of 2020 and applaud the hard work of our team.
We realize that it might seem strange to share our achievements while so many are suffering. However, we believe our employees deserve to be celebrated for the many wins and endeavors they’ve spearheaded throughout the year. We hope you will join us in giving our staff a virtual high-five.
Following is an overview of highlights from LP’s first quarter of 2020.
- In an effort to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, LP transitioned more than 600 team members to work from home in just seven days – a full week before Oregon Governor Kate Brown instituted a state-wide stay-at-home order. Learn more about how LP built its virtual team here.
- To help small businesses adjust to a changing economy, LP has created a free hotline to share solutions with business owners. Businesses are encouraged to call 1-855-BIZ-LINE for a complimentary, no obligation, business strategy consultation. The hotline serves as a friendly business strategist and is open from 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. PST Monday through Friday. Learn more here.
- To compliment the hotline, LP also welcomes conversation in its virtual Facebook group named “eCommunity: Business Survival Guide.” Open to anyone who has questions or advice that will help us all weather the economic downturn, the group emphasizes increasing a brand’s digital presence to retain customers and grab direct-to-market share.
