Welcoming New Employees in a Dire Time

During the coronavirus crisis, demand for medical-grade nonwoven fabrics used in care facilities across the globe has increased sixty-five percent. To keep pace, Jacob Holm welcomed sixty-seven new employees in March and April of 2020. In trying times, taking care of our employees is more important than ever, which is why our Human Resources team initiated a staffing drive that prioritized our existing employees ‘family members who had been laid off or furloughed due to the crisis. By the end of April, our new employees had already logged more than 2000 hours of overtime. We’re proud to produce solutions to unprecedented problems, both in our products and our commitment to the sustainable health of our communities.
