Ensuring Your Business Has the Right Pandemic Protocols
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.
