Questions answered by: Human Resources Consultant Melissa Poli


What support programs has your company offered employees to help cope with the COVID-19 pandemic? As the pandemic hit, Barnum has allowed the majority of staff to work remotely from home. For those employees that could not do their jobs from home, we provided alternative work they could do along with the needed training so they could continue to contribute to the firm.

How do you support community service work by your employees? At the core of Barnum’s community service work is the Foundation for Life Inc. Barnum employees support the foundation through direct donations, participating in various fundraising initiatives and volunteering at our various community service events. Most recently, we raised $40,000 toward a COVID relief fund to benefit front-line health care ­workers.

What was a new employee benefit or initiative in the past 12 months? We are very flexible about allowing people to take the time they need for family and personal development with an “as needed” or unlimited paid-time-off policy.
