McKenney’s is Thriving During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Metro South CID is proud of the resiliency of our district’s businesses that have successfully adapted to the changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lindsay Williams, CID board member and business process & technology manager at mechanical contracting company McKenney’s, Inc. on Moreland Industrial Blvd., is proud of the way her company and the CID have transitioned to the current circumstances. According to Williams, McKenney’s has been able to nearly match its performance when compared to previous years!
When the pandemic hit in full force in March, McKenney’s Atlanta office quickly transitioned to a fully remote workforce for all of its office employees. Over the past few years, the company has focused on modernizing its technology infrastructure, which helped make the transition as smooth as possible. The company’s field employees immediately implemented safety procedures to ensure they could continue working while minimizing risk and exposure. In the past month, McKenney’s workforce has started transitioning to a hybrid remote/in-person work schedule, with procedures in place to ensure employees are staying safe.
In the coming months, Williams says that her company has developed a mindset to be ready for anything. McKenney’s leadership team has made it a priority to focus on the fundamentals of our business and enhance its technology stack, while also focusing on building connections with employees even when not physically present in the office. The company is also getting creative with its business offerings to help its customers set up their buildings to follow new COVID-related requirements. For example, check out McKenney’s blog post to learn why increased indoor air filtration can help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Williams has also been impressed with the Metro South CID’s operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CID’s smooth transition to virtual meetings via Zoom has allowed the CID to continue its much-needed work in the district, including the Moreland Avenue cleanup, leading the charge on the Cedar Grove Bridge update and more.
