From manufacturing personal protection equipment (PPE) to funding charities around the world, Herman Miller is dedicated to serving their communities during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Unparalleled and life-changing are just a couple of ways to describe the COVID-19 crisis. However, even these phrases don't accurately describe the realities of the current situation.

Hospitals are overwhelmed and facing shortages on PPE; people are facing job security uncertainties or anxiety over when they will see their next paychecks; and everyone is trying to adopt the new physical distancing recommendations being issued by the CDC. However, despite the high levels of fear circulating, Herman Miller is seeing a number of companies and individuals taking initiative and leveraging their expertise to help in whatever ways they can. And Herman Miller is no different. "As a company founded on human-centered design, we always put people first. That's exactly why we are helping during the coronavirus crisis."
