Detroit Regional Chamber Provides New Restart Resources to Michigan BusinessesApril 25, 2020
DETROIT – (May 13, 2020) – The Detroit Regional Chamber announces new restart resources to its members and other businesses across the state, to help them prepare for a new era of operation amid the COVID-19 crisis. As “Stay at Home” restrictions are eased, the Chamber has entered the second phase of its three-phase approach – respond, restart, recover – to serving businesses amid COVID-19.
“Since the start of this crisis, the Chamber responded to help businesses navigate the ongoing challenges of the constantly changing COVID-19 environment. As businesses begin to ease into restart the Chamber is now connecting them with trusted advisors from many global consulting firms,” said Sandy K. Baruah, president and CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber. “We are grateful for the wealth of knowledge and expertise the teams at Accenture, Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PwC, and UHY are providing at no cost to Michigan businesses.”
The Restart Michigan initiative offers businesses across the state access to critical information and counsel to enter the restart and recover phases of the crisis. This will include resources, such as webinars and online “how-to” guides and at no extra charge, as well as member access to the Chamber’s government affairs team, to ensure the business maintains its collective voice during the process.
Offerings available consist of a variety of webinars designed specifically for business size, industry, decision-making role within the organization, or state of distress. The webinars are planned and hosted with leading consulting firms including Accenture, Deloitte, Ernst & Young LLP (EY), KPMG LLP, PwC, and UHY LLP. Topics range from Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness, to workforce strategies post-COVID recovery, as well as a full series specifically designed for automotive reopen best practices. Participants gain access to restart and recovery materials and have the opportunity to ask questions during the sessions.

The Chamber has also converted its website to a COVID-19 Business Restart center to support members as Michigan begins to reopen the economy. It allows visitors to access restart resources, continued Tele-Town Hall programming, data dashboards and surveys, the latest COVID-19 news, and updates on Chamber activities to help restart the economy.
