Shall we try harder in saving companies?

Featured Image - Future of Work 5

A lot of companies have gone bankrupt this year due to the pandemic. Saving companies is a very hard thing to do but its doable.

We could for example try saving a companies by : buying a cup of coffee a day, support local buisnisses or even family buisnesses. Take this:When we buy something from a local buisniess it does'nt mean a lot to us but it does to them.

Shall we maybe volountere with them? Help advertise Or even roccomend.

Do you think we can try and save more buisnisses/companies?

    Although this a very short post, I think it starts and interesting new discussion and am keen to hear what people think. I'd also like you to think about who is responsible for saving the companies when you write your response - the consumers (the people who buy things), the business owners or the government?

    I think we should because if we don't then people will not be able to pay for their house, bring in food for themselves or their family and if you think about there are a lot of companies holding up England and a lot of counties. Even if it is the smallest job or a job that is unnecessary to the world nobody deserves to not have a job , be unfed for a long time and risk losing their home or in some case the place where they grew up.

    With this we also need to consider Families which don’t have much. Maybe they just need that last meal to see them through the day and we’d all hate to see anyone struggling. This is also a good way of showing kindness. Always try and support someone through financial issues or even just mental problems.

    That is a very good question and I personally think that many people are trying there best to support there local businesses. I also believe that many people are trying to use them regularly and make them part of there routine

    I think everyone should support their local businesses. Lots of small things add up to one big thing. I think it is a big and challenging ask, however there is no harm in trying. This year has been a tough year, so why not help those who have felt it the most. All our key workers deserve some respect too, as they have worked non stop through covid.👏👍 Lend everyone a hand this Christmas.

    We should try very hard to save companies as soon they might go bankrupt very soon so we should appreciate what the shop owners we have do for the economy.

    I think we should because they will all close down and especially small business that make things to sell
    if all of the shops/business close then if we want to get something but the shops have closed we ant be able to get it and all the money will g to waste
    people might lose the jobs and then they will have to find a new job and this year is a very hard time to find jobs because people have been furloughed or lost their jobs because of covid-19

    even though it was very short i think you were right because by buying stuff from their shop you are giving them money so they can stay in business during the pandemic. But if they had to close down it may be really hard to pay bills because they aren't earning any money were as nurses and docters they can work from home but you can not run a shop online!

    We and the government need to try to save companies from going bankrupt especially during the pandemic as these are strange times and a business that is normally working and earning money may not be able to operate normally due to lockdowns and changes in the way they can open. If many companies close in an area then this leaves empty shops on the street. This can put off shoppers using the other shops in the area as their choice becomes limited and there sometimes is a loss of community spirit. When lots of shops close in a single area it can also lead to the area becoming run down. Thinking about this I will try to shop locally especially at Christmas this year and encourage others to do so too!

      This comment shows some real thought and some great problem-solving. Not only have you considered what this problem might mean for a community, you have also thought about what could be done to help. I have awarded you with a star!

    Everyone including the government have to put in a bit more effort to stop the shops from going bankrupt especially in the pandemic. Lots of people have lost there jobs and can’t pay for essential stuff like food. During the pandemic people can’t work as much which is proving difficult for the companies This is because the companies have to keep opening and closing so as soon as they are back and running they have to shut down again due to lockdown. If companies are shut down that will leave empty shops. This can put of shoppers as that may be the shop they mainly shop in. As there is limited choices the people may lose there community sport.

    I think people need to help companies not go bankrupt especially in this pandemic where the shops are not open for full time and may not get payed as much money. Some businesses are going bankrupt and sadly can’t stay open. In conclusion to all of this bankrupt stuff I think that people should support there local buisnesses as one small thing adds up to something great

    But should we keep all businesses going at any cost? What about those that weren't doing so well before Covid? What about start-ups - where can they fit in if the 'market' is already quite full? As the economy changes, the sorts of businesses that will thrive, or fail, changes - look at what is happening in the retail sector. Small independents vs big chains; online vs high street; agile vs stable. which types of business are thriving in these conditions and which are struggling? will we revert to the way we transacted before covid, or will some of this new behaviour 'stick'?

      I think you are correct as the system was already kind of corrupt and once Coronavirus hit it began to break apart further.

      I think we should use independent business more because the big chains think they’re giants and can take down all the small companies.

    I think that, perhaps the government should give a set amount to small businesses, especially as they rely on the business to live.

    I think we should help less popular businesses more so they don't go bankrupt because people need the bare necessities of life therefore smaller businesses need the most saving.

    this is a very short post but i couldnt agree more with how we could help and as u said it might not mean much to us but it sure does mean alot to them as this post asked if we could help or do something to help i say we should buy atleast more than one thing a day so if this does keep happening there will be a big loss of shopping as we slowly loss our shops then our lives
