What has SELECT changed or adjusted in the wake of COVID-19?
In short, a lot. While we are excited for things to return to normal, our mission is and always has been, to improve the lives of our members. When their lives change, we adapt to better serve them. So what are we doing, exactly?The first thing was moving all of our events to a digital platform, hosting at least 2-3 per week exclusively for our members. These include fitness classes, yoga, investor interviews, panels, cocktail making classes, and more. Dining benefits will always be a huge part of what SELECT does. We've added benefits for take-out and delivery with dozens of our restaurant partners to ensure our members have access to safe, high-quality food via delivery and curbside takeout. We've been searching for the most relevant partners to create relationships with that can assist them in getting through their quarantine. We've introduced new partnerships that give Members access to significant discounts on leading meal subscription delivery boxes, allowing them to prepare high-quality meals at home without going to the grocery store. We're adding discounts on a variety of business products and services so the entrepreneur and exec-level managers in our community can reduce business costs without reducing headcount. All of these initiatives will continue past this pandemic and make membership more valuable than ever before. We take our mission very seriously and will always work tirelessly to improve the lives of our members.
