My husband's company closed yesterday, employees were encouraged to volunteer in their communities that day instead. Unfortunately, DH is travelling now and had to work anyway. Small factoid, the company is probably the largest in the nation, if not world, in their industry.
I just started a job in R&D recently myself. The company didn't even lower their flag at my offices yesterday until someone asked why the flag wasn't flying at half-mast. Yes, it's another major international company.
