COVID-19 Employer Updates

The Wellness Council’s top priority is the safety of its employees, members, investors and other partners/guests. While there is a large volume of information being circulated about the coronavirus pandemic from a wide variety of sources, we encourage you to utilize the information below in helping make the decisions that are best for your organization. You may also submit a related question that will be answered by staff or private sector professionals.

Road to Recovery Policy Agenda

The Indiana Chamber endorses a gradual re-opening of the state’s economy, recognizing the ongoing importance of health and safety. We must get back to a level of business activity that resembles some sense of normalcy. That need is reinforced by the findings of our recent Economic Road to Recovery Survey of member companies across the state.

What you will find below are education and tools to help you restart your business. A “submit a question” feature enables you to get answers to your specific questions by staff or private sector professionals. The Chamber will continue to offer free webinars led by legal, HR and other professionals on a wide range of topics designed to help your business emerge from this crisis.
