This from the CEO of Kroger Co. to his embattled employees:
“This is a situation none of us have ever been in, and at a time when our customers and our country truly need us, you are there every step of the way. None of this would be possible without each and every one of you, working together as one. It’s so inspiring. I can’t thank you enough for your dedication to our customers and each other. You inspire me, it is so impressive.”
And then to add real appreciation to his words, he’s awarded bonuses to all of them.
As an aside: Daughter’s future hubby is a store manager for another grocery chain, and over the past month all store employees have been told, “Don’t worry about the hours; you come to work, work as long as you can, and we’ll pay the overtime, regardless.”
Poor guy has had about six hours’ sleep ever since. Daughter is a stern task master.
