Staying the Course Proves Essential for Xcel

During a recent Round Table Discussion with our Field Leaders, I made the comment: “You could say we are lucky. You could say we are unlucky.”

My comment addressed the fact that construction was deemed an essential service weeks ago by the same government agencies that directed our families to stay home.

Well a lot can change in six weeks. While COVID-19 remains a serious threat, and while the safety of our employees remains our Top Priority, we were told this week that our current largest facility – Paramount Studios – is now back online.

With unemployment skyrocketing across the nation, the U.S. Government is making investments in businesses like ours to help Americans get back to work. This week’s Paramount news puts our company in great position. We can see everyone who wants to work getting back on the job in the next few weeks. And that is good news.
