Fulfilling customer orders while complying with stringent corona protocols and ensuring the safety of on-site employees, was a challenging task for Chem-Trend. Wen was one of 16 colleagues who supported the company call and returned to the site to resume his duties. “Our management team was well-prepared and cared about our wellbeing. I am proud to support my company in these extraordinary times,” says Wen.
As the saying goes: Every cloud has a silver lining. Over the past two months, countless volunteers selflessly gave their time and energy to support their communities. Coming from all walks of life, they joined together to help deliver food supplies to the doors of residents, look after the elderly, and assist with Covid-19 testing and numerous other essential tasks. Wayne Xu, Senior Attorney at Freudenberg Regional Corporate Center Asia, was among them. “I feel very happy and motivated that I could help people in need. I really appreciate the fact that my manager supported me to fulfil my social responsibility.”
Throughout the lockdown in Shanghai, Freudenberg companies found many ways to support their employees in getting through this challenging time. With employees faced with difficulties in ordering food, the companies themselves banded together to organize the delivery of both food and essential supplies.
