What if in this moment of crisis and pandemic due to COVID-19 companies lend talent, how do soccer teams do in Latin America, instead of firing this people?
The moment is of instability in several markets. Some companies have started to fire without thinking about the social consequences of mass unemployment, but there are creative initiatives trying to circumvent the difficulties and keep more people working longer.
There are areas that until recently were heated up as design and technology and still have open positions. That´s why we thought about the thinking: what if companies that cannot afford their professionals at that moment, temporarily share their talents with companies that are hiring?
A common practice in the soccer market in Latin AMerica, of “loaning” players, can be an solution for other markets. Why couldn't this happen in our design and technology market, too?
The initiative “Se Organizar Direitinho...” in Portugues" – or Let´s get organized properly ...in a free translation” - is an idea of Meiuca.org, Meiuca's non-profit organization which in this project bridges the gap between those who want to give a talent and those who need a professional now. The campaign hashtag is # NãoDemitaDivida (that would be in English #donotfireshare ) and has enjoyed sharing and a lot of support in the design universe in Brazil.
