A Merry Covid Christmas

‘Twas the year of Corona and all across the world
Not a creature was stirring as a pandemic unfurled

Face masks were placed on our faces with care
We kept a safe distance and became more aware

The nation was anxious as the virus did spread
Whilst brave healthcare workers were filled with such dread

At Cordant we responded guidance clearly outlined
All of us worried with lots on our mind

We moved to remote working without any trouble
And met temp requests which rose over double

Furlough hit people still needing employ
So we offered great jobs which filled them with joy

Across the UK hygiene made people fuss
But we kept people moving by train and by bus

Covid deep cleans, were in high demand
But our cleaning experts, were always at hand

We recruited teams to support track and trace
Which for the NHS was a saving grace

We supported candidates, of all different kinds
Helping them find careers in uncertain times

Our security teams monitored new social norms
Safeguarding the people from old to new borns

Controlling the crowds, the public protected
We kept business running for any clients affected

With clients needing talent all skillful and slick.
We knew at that moment we had to act quick

More rapid than ever we sourced without shirking
IT experts a plenty for new virtual working

In Northern Ireland hiring busier than ever
Job seekers out searching for their next endeavour

With unemployment a worry support we bestowed
When we placed people in jobs the gratitude showed

In our European business the network did grow
With more jobs in the pipeline the pressure didn’t show

Taking the sector by storm was an amazing new team
In energy and construction we were living the dream

So as we get closer to the end of the year
We hope that this rhyme has filled you with cheer

It talks of successes and what we’ve achieved
How we made it through because we believed

To colleagues, and clients and candidates alike
You showed such resilience when Covid did strike

Enjoy a much deserved break positive change is in sight
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good-night!

Merry Christmas everybody
