Helping Members Shine With a Virtual Office Contest
These types of things can relieve stress during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered many landscapes, including how and where Americans work. A large portion of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals’ (APMP) 10,000 members already work from home, so, mindful of the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, APMP thought it was time to lighten the mood a bit after weeks of dire, stressful news.
They’re doing that with the “Show Us Your Virtual Office Contest.” APMP CEO Rick Harris said it’s a good way to both showcase their members and help people who might be struggling with the transition to a work-at-home environment.
APMP members respond to government and commercial requests for proposals. They are the people, Harris said, “who write the bids that win new business.” It is an often high-pressure job that does not come with a great deal of recognition. Harris said the contest “lets us take a pause and reflect back on the member and make a star out of them.”
