COVID-19: Here are some of the best and worst behaved companies

I’ve written a couple of different posts discussing some of the positives that have come from this COVID-19 pandemic. It can be challenging to recognize some of the good happening around us when we are faced with incredulous difficulties, but I believe it to be important as it is a means to keep our spirits raised.

And, on the topic of the positives that have developed in this pandemic, there have been some major companies and businesses that have truly excelled in terms of assisting others. And, unfortunately, there are others who haven’t. An article from The Good News Network provides examples of companies on either end of the spectrum, and because I found this information to be interesting, I wanted to share it with all of you.

The Good News Network “polled readers on (its) Facebook page to find out which companies have excelled during the pandemic of 2020, and which ones didn’t live up to normal standards of customer service,” explains the article.

The good:

  • Progressive
  • Geico
  • Xfinity
  • Best Buy
  • IKEA
  • Bombas
  • Jellycat
  • Chewy’s
  • H-E-B Grocery Company
  • King Arthur Baking Company
  • Costco
  • Amazon Fresh
  • Kroger
  • Dixon Distillery
  • Opa! Greek Taverna
  • Johnson Cranberries
  • MOD Pizza
  • House of Pizza
  • 4 Corners Pub
  • Sherm’s Catering
  • Westmont Diner and Market
  •  Chick Fil A
  • Panera
  • Whiskey Cake
  • Taco Bell
  • Newton Farm Shop
  • Detroit Street Filling Station
  • Wonder World
  • Spring Lake Village
  • ClassPass Gym
  • Gold’s Gym

The bad:

  • Wayfair
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Aldi
  • Hotwire
  • Skagen

It is nice to see that the good list seriously surpasses the bad list in terms of nominations. It is worth noting that some of these companies are strictly American, and while I reside in Canada, it’s worthwhile to keep some of these bad companies in mind for when I am able to travel across the border once again.

Do you have any examples of some great, and some not so great, companies and/or businesses you have dealt with during this pandemic?
