HEC’s COVID-19 Resources — Updates & Highlights

When Hawaii Employers Council’s first article about the coronavirus came out in early February, there were only 11 reported cases in the United States and none in Hawaii.  To say that a lot has happened in the past five months would be a massive understatement.  There has been, without a doubt, an excess of adversity.  But there have also been countless displays of humanity, community, and creativity.  Through it all, HEC has strived to provide our members and the Hawaii business community with timely information, resources, and advice.  We will continue to assist Hawaii businesses not only survive, but thrive and use this opportunity to grow into stronger organizations.
