This week I received a message on LinkedIn. It was from the CEO of a well-known privately-owned tourism company. They, like many in the sector, have been hammered by the impact of the virus and the associated global halt of the tourism industry.

His message was lamenting the fact that they were, once again, saying farewell to a number of their dedicated team members. In doing so he was asking the audience — essentially his contacts on the business-oriented social network — to keep an eye out for his people and to help them to find jobs if we could.

It wasn’t a long post. But you could feel the pain in his words.
