COVID-19 Changing Up Your Business Practices
We understand the uncertainty that today’s world brings, personally and professionally. Read more about the importance of changing up your business practices to help keep you, your employees, your customers and our communities as safe and healthy as possible.
Increase Phone Calls
We know, emails and text have taken over! However, sometimes a live voice can make all the difference. To help keep in practice with social distance guidelines and minimize interpersonal contact, phone calls are now more important today than ever. Scheduling group and individual phone calls to review and discuss business strategy, pending projects and proper protocols are imperative to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
Video conferencing is an excellent way to minimize contact while also maintaining the visual aspects of having a conference in-person. This way, you are able to still effectively communicate and visually demonstrate your objectives of the conference. Many video conference services also allow you to share your screen with participants, providing you with the ability to review presentations and other materials with your colleagues in real-time.
Make the most of technology during this unprecedented time. Keeping morale high while also effectively communicating with your co-workers and customers is key. Consider making a personalized video for your customers or employees, or creating an interactive survey to help gain some insight for your business and best practices. There are so many tools and different kinds of software available that can aid your business during this time. Do a little digging and see what you can find.

This is a great time to look at long-term planning and make some decisions on how to improve your business moving forward.
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that we are all feeling the impact of COVID-19. We are all in this together.
