Scottsdale-based GoDaddy Inc. has publicly pledged not to lay off employees for at least 90 days as part of its new campaign to help small businesses keep working during the trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The web domain provider said that more than 30 brands have joined its Open We Stand movement, centered ona website where each corporate member contributes resources, tools, insights and inspiration to help small business owners adapt to current conditions and stay open even when their doors are closed.

As part of the movement, GoDaddy said in its April 15 announcement that it has signed a corporate pledge committing not to lay off employees for at least 90 days so they “can continue to help customers while feeling safe,” according to an announcement.

The company also said it will use its purchasing power to help small businesses whenever possible.
