Coronavirus (COVID-19) Business Resources

Rainmaker is committed to supporting you through the current COVID-19 situation and always. We want to be a valuable resource that you can call upon at any time to help assist you through any challenges or uncertainties you have.

Communities are essential in times such as these and can be ideal structures to respond to one another, share ideas, communicate one to one and one to many via this platform, and work to normalize new behaviors. We are talking with firm leaders, practice leaders, and team members throughout the day and hearing questions, updates, and suggestions, which are valuable to share with one another.

We will continue to provide you with updates on this resource bank and communication from our team members. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Rainmaker team with any questions, resources, or suggestions.

You are not alone in this. Be sure to check on and encourage one another.
