Welcome, let's improve your business today!
Millions of businesses are being affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, it may not surprise you that you will have to adjust your budget to accommodate the massive amount of changes that we will see when the outbreak is handled and everyday life begins to normalize. Today, we thought we’d take you through some of the financial challenges your business is sure to have to deal with when the stay-at-home orders lift.
Productivity is a significant challenge for businesses in the best of times, which means that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has only complicated things. Now, many businesses are attempting to preserve their productivity by transferring to remote operations. This strategy, if acted upon appropriately, can prove to be effective if the right approach is taken.
There are many reasons that your team may want (or need) to work from home, and there are many reasons to allow them to do so. A 2019 survey by OwlLabs indicated that 71 percent of remote workers are happy with their job (as compared to 55 percent of on-site workers); remote workers responded that they are 13 percent more likely than onsite workers to stay in their current job for five more years than onsite workers will; and when respondents claimed to be working longer than 40 hours per week, onsite workers were doing so out of necessity, while remote workers did so out of desire and enjoyment.
It’s not uncommon where a situation arises and you will find yourself working from home. To make this work, it is important that you keep a few additional issues in mind so that you can make the most of it. We have put together a few simple best practices that you should keep in mind as you operate remotely.
We know many of you have started working from home, or need to, almost overnight. The move to a remote workforce for many has happened almost instantaneously. Many don’t realize they’re no longer as protected as they were in the office. But you’re STILL expected to protect the company data.
Now, it’s more important than ever to conduct your work safely. Please view this training from one of our trusted vendors, showing what you should be doing to keep your remote workspace safe. Get peace of mind by learning the critical steps you should take when working remotely.
