#KeepUPWorking – It Pays to Work Now

Many businesses and manufacturers in the Dickinson County Area are essential businesses and are actively hiring.

We are here to answer questions you have about Why It Pays to Work Now.

 YOUR WORK MATTERS

We are at a crucial point in history. As a UP resident, you are the MOST important part of our #KeepUPWorking mission. 

If portions of our workforce elect to stay home for months, the U.P. will not move forward in the way it urgently needs. 

It is time to embrace the role you play in the bigger picture.

YOUR CAREER BEYOND COVID-19

Companies are going to remember who worked hard during this time. There is no guarantee that your job will be the same after the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Short term decisions now do not make rational long term decisions. 

Consider the benefits provided by employers – healthcare, disability, retirement savings, education reimbursement – in addition to wages.

 

UNCERTAINTY OF THE FUTURE JOB MARKET

Now is the time to gain or retain a good opportunity. No one knows what the future holds or fully understands how the economy will bounce back from this crisis.  It is possible that job opportunities may be scarce and the market will be flooded by candidates. 

Don’t wait. 

Stay ahead by securing a new position now or continuing to build your experience in the position you have.

 

LEARN ABOUT SAFE WORKPLACES

Companies are taking additional precautions to ensure the safety and health of their employees and visitors. This includes screening questionnaires regarding health and recent travel, daily temperature checks, additional PPE/cloth face coverings, social distancing, frequent cleaning, and extensive hygiene measures.
