As we deal with cold and dark homes, limited services and scattered tree trunks, many of our employees and family members have found refuge at work. Reporter Adam Schefter pointed out Monday to his 1 million twitter followers: “With massive power outages in Connecticut, ESPN has turned into a cross between a shelter and day-care center.”
With generator-powered facilities, ESPNers have taken advantage of emergency child care, hot showers and warm meals. But even better has been the strong sense of community that has been on display as co-workers share their support and, in many cases, their homes.
ESPN president George Bodenheimer captured the ESPN esprit de corps today when he told employees: “It has always been true that the people of ESPN band together….It’s what has made this a special and exhilarating place to work.”
