FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A major Denver startup is now pledging no layoffs of employees for the upcoming three month period. In fact, this particular company is still hiring during the covid19 coronavirus stay at home order! Encouragement from the CEO of Salesforce encouraged this decision.
Handshaking announced this commitment recently in March 2020, noting that CEO Matt Holmes is also calling on fellow Colorado startup founders that are not heavily effected to take a pledge to no layoffs for the upcoming 90-days until end end of May. He also stated that an important part of this no-layoff-policy is that it can give employees a certain level of security. This company pledge is in sharp contrast to other local startup companies that have been letting staff go recently in response to the pandemic.
Fortunately, in mid-2019, Handshaking became a fully remote team and did not renew an office lease after over 6 years of having an office.
Handshaking is currently hiring for a number of key positions in spite of the fact that the overall posting numbers may be lower than the company had been planning for when this year began.
Handshaking gave out a 'coronavirus stipend' to every full-time employee in March 2020 in order to equip employees with the funds they need to prepare for any economic surprises. They also plan to offer prorated year end bonuses for any full-time staff member that started in 2019 in case April brings new surprises.
