The SBA has approved $125.75 billion in loans so far from the second round as of Feb. 15. Since the initial launch of the PPP program last spring, it has shelled out $648.18 billion to companies.
There is always a tension between the wishes of management and what employees are willing to do. The challenge is for those in authority to provide a means for employees to achieve the mission by following the organization's strategic direction.
