A note from our co-CEOs:
Our Pledge to Customers, Partners, Employees and Communities in Response to COVID-19
On Friday, March 27, New Hampshire Governor Sununu issued a stay-at-home order, allowing only essential businesses to remain open. Having been deemed an essential business, Badger will continue to operate fully. We know that we hold a great responsibility to our employees, customers, partners, and the community to ensure that we are creating a work environment that is safe and healthy while doing our part to slow the spread of the virus.
Here’s what we’re doing to protect our…
Workers’ Health, Safety & Financial Security
- Employees who can are now set up to work from home.
- Enhanced protocols for social distancing and rigorous cleaning and sanitizing have been enacted onsite, including additional deep cleanings more frequently in high-touchpoint locations.
- Employees working onsite are receiving additional pay for the duration of the New Hampshire stay-at-home order.
- Job retention for all employees is a priority, which includes increased paid sick leave and continued benefits for anyone who chooses to self-isolate, as well as cross-training and flexible hours, where feasible.
Suppliers, Partners, Customers & Communities
- Committing to continuing to pay our suppliers and partners with a focus on supporting long term partnerships.
- Shifting production to focus on essential products most needed during this time.
- Establishing an emergency fund for local organizations responding to the effects of the coronavirus.
- Actively seeking out local organizations where excessive hand washing and hand sanitization is a necessity to donate badger healing balm.
In addition, Badger’s Co-CEOs and the family team have elected to take a 20% reduction in salary until the business and employees are all in a safe, healthy, and economically secure place.
We remain grateful for your loyalty, support, and cooperation as we work together to make the best of this situation.
Thank you for doing your part to help slow the spread of the virus and flatten the curve.
Emily and Rebecca, co-CEOs
