Non-governmental solutions for the SMEs with massive business losses

Problem description

A great number of companies, especially those revolving around event/show planning/tourism/restaurants/bars/clubs/public transportation, etc. as well as their providers are facing massive sales drops. The small and medium-sized enterprises that lack a significant capitalization are among the most affected.

In addition to the potential government support programmes, there is a need for alternative commercial spaces that may allow these companies to survive until the level of demand for their traditional services recovers.

Aspects of the problem

notified by those who have completed the form

HR problems

  • People from various industries laid off immediately after budget cuts (which it is likely to have already happened);
  • For the employees that have been laid off out of various reasons, we need to ensure remote jobs, maybe jobs abroad;
  • We are under a lot of pressure and we are tempted to lay off good employees just to save the budget. Is it ok?

Financial Problems

  • Generally, a Freelancer (in Romania) lives on the money they earn on a monthly basis. Thus, postponed payments and lack of requests and customers have an immediate impact and it’s even more powerful than in case of a company; when a company faces cash-flow problems, the first payments they cancel or postpone are those that are due to their collaborators;
  • Supporting small enterprises, including social enterprises (with or without accreditation), from the areas that are closely affected by the travelling restrictions (hotels & catering industry, education, culture), with small incomes and reduced cash reserves, with locally rooted employment that have no other alternative to earn any income;
  • Liquidities for the companies directly affected by the economic lockdown for the payment of fixed expenses and salaries;
  • Cash flow: the small and medium-sized enterprises are not prepared for a long period deprived of cash flows;
  • Gig workers may be financially at risk and/or they may risk their health at the workplace;
  • We anticipate problems related to invoice payment collection;

Operational problems

  • Entrepreneurs with shops in commercial centres. The sales dropped by X %. I want to send all employees home for their safety and for the safety of their families. The commercial centres are opened and the management will not close them. What shall we do?
  • The sales will drop dramatically in the upcoming period for most of the small and medium-sized enterprises, many of them not being able to resist long enough to overcome the crisis;
  • Loss of contracts by those working in event and fair planning;
  • Loss of customers for those working in hotel & catering industry – how will they survive;
  • Transporters are left without their object of activity, being forced to cancel their travels for at least the next two months;
  • Problems related to the security of companies, of their employees and customers;
  • Increasing the efficiency of all costs related to security (guard, technical security systems, monitoring and response, other costs related to companies’ security);
