Greetings!

While we all know that 2020 hasn't gone exactly as we had all imagined, one thing we can all say with fairly high confidence is that we've learned to adapt to what seems like daily changes as it relates to both work and personal life! Whether it's news about closures, restaurant capacity changing, mask ordinances, and what's going to happen with the 2020-2021 school year, it's safe to say that we have learned to take each day as it comes. Now add in the triple-digit heat here in Central Texas, we're also all probably getting quite creative when it comes to new ways to entertain ourselves and our families! If you've come up with any new, fun activities, we'd love to hear about them!

What has been quite interesting is our conversations with multiple clients across the Austin and San Antonio markets regarding how each business has approached the current situation and adapted while still reaching their business goals and initiatives. Some are reassessing the need for physical office space and fully embracing work from home capabilities, while others have created skeleton crews and implemented social distancing policies and procedures. If you'd like additional ideas and strategies on how you and your company can continue to move forward in this ever-changing business environment, we'd love to help.

Last month, we shared with you an article regarding the bounce-back we experienced in May regarding the jobs market. In June, we got more good news! In this newsletter, you'll see the full BLS Economic News Release, in addition to some additional ways you can take advantage of any potential downtime you may have during the COVID crisis. If you're busier than ever, give us a call to discuss how we might be able to get you some help!

To Your Success,
