It may take some time for the world to get back to normal. We’re more than two months into the COVID-19 pandemic, and the end is not in sight. Now that your business has become accustomed to remote work, it’s time to assess any lingering vulnerabilities and capitalize on opportunities for improvement.
When the COVID-19 crisis hit, it hit fast. Despite what, in retrospect, may have seemed like a gradual build-up, it was virtually over the course of a single weekend in March that businesses across the US had to pivot to a remote work model.
Obviously, the first priority was maintaining business continuity. You needed to make sure your new remote workers had the technology and the remote access necessary to do their work. But that doesn’t mean the work is done. Now that you’ve established a rudimentary remote work model, it’s time to perfect it.
