COVID-19 | #TogetherWeCan
This is Felicia speaking on behalf of FULLSTOP & FULLSIGHT,
We are totally aware that the world has become pretty chaotic lately; I am not talking about the COVID-19 since I am not an expert. But we all agree that this whole COVID-19, has completely changed our perspectives in life. This is the first time in human history that we are taught to stand alone, not to gather together but to separate ourselves from each other and comply with #physicaldistancing. This is terrifying.
For the first time in 8 years of FULLSTOP's journey, last week, our team decided to temporarily work from home. However, I’ve been reading a lot, thinking a lot, and restarting myself trying to see this devastating situation from other perspectives. I have finally come up with decision for myself, my company, and everyone working under FULLSTOP & FULLSIGHT. Starting from Monday, 30 March 2020, our company will run back fulltime.
During this difficult time of COVID-19 Pandemic, we are all tested as human beings. This is the time to restart ourselves, to start thinking, take the time to meditate, and be grateful of every little thing we have in life. This too, shall pass. During myself reflection, I have found out, that the thing that terrifies me (and a lot of us, too) the most, is not the COVID-19 itself, but the domino effect after. I have seen many businesses shut down in the past 2 weeks, temporarily or permanently. And sadly, this might be just the beginning. Because during time like this, quitting and putting everything into prayer surely is the easiest solution to all. However, to all my friends who are working in this creative industry, this is the time we can actually save lives, save one family’s lifeline by not eliminating one's job, by keep on doing what we are doing. After all, passion without vision is not called business. Remember all those difficult times when you started your agencies. Remember all those faces who’ve been working with you during the first time you got your first clients, and remember all those achievements your team’s been through. Everything was sweet, wasn’t it?
We understand completely that business and economy has been tough, this is why I personally took this decision to keep on going, working side by side with every single one of our clients, utilizing what we have today to make differences, to start saving more people’s life.
Starting from Friday, 27 March 2020, our operation team and I has improved the standards of our operational hygiene regulations in our headquarters, (yes, our HQ was not the cleanest working place and we do need to upgrade the hygiene standards) working our best to make sure everyone’s hygiene is at good condition in order to be able to serve every brand under our management. NOBODY is left behind in FULLSTOP, this is a commitment I made as a leader. Because we are more than just workers, we are FAMILY here.
To all of our clients, I hope this is worth it, and by the time this pandemic is gone, we shall all be reborn into better businesses, better individuals.
