Reopening Your Business Comes with Real Challenges

Reopening Your Business Comes with Real Challenges

Business reopening is proving to be relatively difficult as COVID-19 isn’t going away. To ensure the health of your staff, while still reopening your business to create revenue, you will need to carefully weigh all your operational decisions. Today, we have outlined some best practices in which to do so. 

1. Temperature Checks and Face Masks

Many places in the world have mandated that people wear protective face masks when they are in public, while different places of the world haven’t taken that step, but people are using common sense and following along. When reopening your office, you will want to ensure that your people remain safe. That means wearing face masks while you are in the office. This is more necessary if your business has an open office setting. 

It is also likely that temperature checks could become a prerequisite to enter your workspace. Anyone that has a temperature above 38°C would not be allowed to come in. Doing this will help to minimize the risk of someone potentially carrying the virus into your workplace.

2. Distancing and Altering Shifts

Social distancing is one of the most important health mandates, which can be difficult if you have a defined space for all of your employees to work. Some businesses that are eager to get their teams back in the office have started changing some of their scheduling practices. Rather than everyone working from an office each weekday, they are now stretching the workweek out to seven days and changing the schedule. 

The open office will likely need to be put on hold. Cubicles and barriers to keep people six feet apart will be crucial for the health of your team.

3. Adjusted Meetings and Canceled Events

If you are one of the companies that have been conducting your meetings remotely, you probably won’t see much of a shift. You will likely continue using your video conferencing solution to conduct meetings. For all other interactions at the workplace, you will see a crackdown on typically social spots in your office.

It goes without saying that it is irresponsible to hold most of your company’s family-oriented events. In fact, any event that forces people to be in close proximity should be tabled for the foreseeable future. 

If you need help with your reopening plans, HUB Technology Solutions can help you make any technology adjustments that you may require. For more information about the way that we can help you sustain your operations, reach out to us at 204-772-8822 or 1-833-847-0725.
