Over the past year, business owners in Gordon, Murray, and South Whitfield Counties and the surrounding communities have reevaluated many things about doing business.

That’s understandable. After all, no one saw a pandemic coming.

But now that one is here, business owners have to navigate the murky waters of providing services, staying open and safely serving their customers and clients.

Some of these resources may be able to help you do just that.

Things to Consider

Many businesses have already been looking into remote work policies for employees who can do their jobs remotely. But here are some thoughts from HR experts to help businesses navigate this unprecedented time.

Reevaluate your work from home policies. Of course, not every job can be done from a home office. But some can. Experts recommend evaluating the duties your employees are performing and decide what can and can’t effectively be done in a remote office.

Find tools to help with productivity. Many employers worry about what working from home will do to productivity. Luckily there are apps, tools and management systems available to help you and your employees monitor things.

Consider your PTO policies, too. Employees might need more flexibility during this time. Not many people leave town on vacation, but people might need extra leave time to deal with online learning and childcare issues.

Some jobs and businesses do have to account for some degree of in-person service. (Restaurants are a great example of this type of business.)

In that case, then it’s a good idea to look to CDC guidelines for updates about social distancing, masking and hygiene best practices.

You can use this information to guide how your own business is dealing with the pandemic.

Decluttering Your Office

A clean environment is a healthy environment. Improve your living and workspaces this spring. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you declutter your office.

  • Divide your workspace into zones. Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.
  • Keep only what you need at arm's length. Boxes of pens, stacks of papers, and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter.
  • Create a daily system for organization. Consider creating hanging files or baskets.
  • Sort through your catch-all "junk" drawer. Go through your drawers every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.
  • Eliminate digital clutter by organizing your work inbox. Keep icons on your desktop to a minimum.

If you need a little help, don't worry, SERVPRO® of Gordon, Murray and South Whitfield Counties professionals have the tools to make your home or business sparkle in no time.

How Our Restoration-First Mentality Works for You

11/5/2020 (Permalink)

If you have sustained damage to your home for the first time, you are likely to learn quite a bit about how the recovery process works. Not only are there logistical considerations to handle, but there is also the emotional impact of going through an event that damages your home, which can be significant.
Fortunately, working with the right restoration company can help you throughout the entire process. Not only can restoration save you money on costly insurance claims that can increase your premium, but it can also help your family heal more easily from the trauma. Read on to learn more about our restoration-first philosophy.
The Importance of a Restoration-First Philosophy
We are determined to save your belongings. While many people assume that everything they own will need to be liquidated after damages, when you work with us that is not necessarily the case. We have all the equipment necessary to clean, sanitize and deodorize objects after damage, allowing us to restore items that normally could not be salvaged. This is a cost-effective process compared to replacement and ensures that you will be able to hang onto the objects you already own and love if it is possible to do so.
We are determined to handle all the damage. The small touches make your house feel like a home, and when we handle restoration, we understand the importance of these little things. We handle all aspects of your damage, from the big, structural issues to small things like painting and refinishing floors. That way, you recognize your home as soon as you walk through the door.
We are determined to help you heal. The time after you sustain household damage can be tumultuous, especially if you have to leave the home for the restoration to take place. We understand this, which is why we work as quickly as possible to get your damages taken care of so you can return home.
If you have damage to your home, we are here to help. You can get in touch at any time to report damage with our 24⁄7 emergency line. Contact us today to learn more.
