Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, in which Americans are grappling with job loss and an uncertain future, one Real Housewives husband is ensuring that his employees are taken care of.
The Real Housewives of Dallas' Travis Hollman, who is the husband of Stephanie Hollman, has announced plans to protect his nearly 300 employees during this chaotic time. "Standing Proud against this virus. We are guaranteeing our 285 employees full pay until at least May 1 !!! No matter what. No layoffs!!! We will do what we can to help our [Hollman Lockers] family. We are all in this together," he wrote on Instagram.
Travis owns Hollman Inc., a sports, fitness and office lockers manufacturing business which has been in the Hollman family since 1976 and which Travis himself bought two years ago.
Stephanie is definitely feeling the love for her husband's generosity, which she expressed in an Instagram post. "So proud to be married to you [Travis Hollman]. We have made a promise to our 285 [Hollman Lockers] employees full pay until at least May 1st, as well as the promise of no layoffs. It is important to do the right thing at a time like this instead of focusing on our profits. We hope that other companies that are financially able to take care of their employees will follow (many small businesses are not in the position to do so and are struggling to survive at the moment). We are all in this together," she wrote. "Be kind to each other and have faith that better days are coming."
It's not the first time Stephanie has shared her admiration for her husband and his company. In 2018, when Hollman, Inc. announced it would pay for its employees and their spouses and dependents to attend North Lake College as part of the Hollman HELPs program, Stephanie also shared she was "so proud" of her husband.
