Business continuity aside, we cannot help but wonder about the welfare of the people in our industry. They are not only materials handling professionals, but they are also parents, spouses, siblings and children. And while their jobs may be secure, we fear for their emotional and psychological wellbeing. This may be a good time to reach out to your colleagues and make sure they are "okay".
