Message from Impact Washington President & Center Director

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 | Manufacturing, News Release, Workforce

As the global effect of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, Impact Washington is committed to exercising extreme caution in response to the latest updates of the COVID-19 outbreak by following the CDC Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers.
To ensure the safety of our staff, we are working remotely to the greatest extent possible, with a plan to continue operations as best as we can so that we can continue to support the Manufacturing Community of Washington State.
 We are also implementing the following:

  • We are canceling all of our in-person trainings and events until April 30. We will be in touch as soon as we can re-schedule these meaningful engagements for our clients and community.
  • We are encouraging virtual meetings employing remote technology if possible (Zoom, Skype, Teams, etc.), to meet the social distancing requested from the governor's office. Your points of contact will be in touch to determine if virtual meetings are possible or to discuss the status of your current project.
  • We are creating a no-cost virtual training curriculum in the coming days. Please let us know of any topics of interest.
  • We have developed a COVID-19 Section of our website that provides Washington State manufacturers with financial, operational, and healthcare resources regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.  As new information becomes available from State and Federal resources, we will continue to share on this section of our site.

Our staff is available for free consultations to help your company address operational, supply chain, or financial issues that may be arising as a result of the crisis. We want to connect with you to hear how this situation has impacted your business and understand your needs.  Please contact us directly via our website or email us here.
As new developments occur, be assured that we are committed to our mission of ensuring a healthy, vibrant, and capable manufacturing community in Washington State. We are committed to helping and supporting you through this challenging time.
We will get through this together!
