Gibson’s leadership decided to provide all Gibson hourly factory workers with a $1.000 support payment to help get the team through this difficult health crisis. The company has set up various communication platforms to keep the team informed, including the Gibson DIAL (Direct Information Advisory Line) for all employees.
On March 22, Nashville mayor John Cooper ordered all non-essential businesses to close for the 14-day “Safer at Home Order.” Gibson is aligned with this request. The company also took the preventative step to temporarily close its Bozeman, Mont., facility, despite there being no government request. The Gibson Headquarters team located in Nashville will be working remotely for the foreseeable future to provide the appropriate levels of service across all functions.
“At the early stages of this unfortunate and ever-evolving situation, we took a proactive approach to monitoring and prioritizing the health and safety of our entire team around the world,” said James ‘JC’ Curleigh, CEO of Gibson. “I am proud of the way our teams have responded and we now shift our focus to supporting each other to get through this together.”
The company will continue to monitor and assess the situation and will keep the extended partnership base of employees, dealers, suppliers and others informed accordingly.
