Today, our Founder and CEO, Manish Chandra, sent the following letter to the Poshmark community about the COVID-19 pandemic and steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of the community:
Dear Poshmark Community,
Community is at the heart of everything we do at Poshmark and with growing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know that the health and safety of the Poshmark community, including our team, is our top priority. Our operations are running strong to support everyone on the Poshmark platform, with many of our employees now working from home.
As we monitor this evolving situation, we wanted to share an update on some of the ways we are protecting the Poshmark community.
Listening to the Experts: We are closely monitoring the guidance from local and federal authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to safeguard our employees and community. We encourage you to do the same and stay informed.
Supporting You: We know that millions of Poshers across the US and a growing number in Canada look to Poshmark as a place to earn or save money, build their brands, and support their families and livelihoods as small business owners. We work hard every day to keep our operations running smoothly for you and to ensure we will not let you down. We’ll use our blog to share key updates with you throughout this time and we’ll continue to keep Poshers front and center as we think about ways to make your experience as safe and sustainable as possible.
Continuing to Foster Connections: Human connection is essential to daily life. Every like and share on Poshmark is an act of support and encouragement, and a small way to show compassion for each other. For the safety of our community, we have postponed all in-person events. We know how important it is for Poshers to gather, so we’re working to create virtual events to help foster this connection. More details will be communicated soon. If you’re interested in hosting or attending a virtual event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is nothing more powerful and resilient than our amazing community—we want to thank you for showing your love and being a part of Poshmark. Stay well.
Founder and CEO, Poshmark
