Mitigating the impact of COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the world, brands are rising to the challenge and doing extraordinary things to help people in their time of need.

Every week, we will be continuing to track how customers’ needs are changing in light of COVID-19 and how brands are continuing to evolve their responses. This week, brands are continuing to be efficient around operations to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, and we see them now helping to bring back some normality to customers’ lives by thinking creatively.
