OKLAHOMA CITY (March 30, 2020) – Pat Russell, the president of ImageNet Consulting, offered the following statement regarding the company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As our company grapples with the massive business disruptions caused by this outbreak, our first concern was ensuring we could keep as many people as possible employed for as long as possible. We implemented a series of steps to cut costs, including asking our top executives to forego their pay and capping all salaries at $75,000,” Russell said.
“While there was uncertainty about the federal government response, we also asked a small group of employees to reduce their compensation by an amount equal to any government support they received,” he said. “Our intentions were to serve the greater good and protect our most vulnerable employees. However, we understand our plan was ill-advised. We have rescinded the potential program, and we apologize for any pain or confusion it caused.”
“Our company continues to investigate all government programs which will help us weather this unprecedented and difficult situation,” he said. “We remain committed to serving our customers and to protecting our employees’ health and safety.”
