Microsoft Office Lens Lets You Scan Virtually AnythingRead more
With the right tools in place, it doesn’t matter if your staff is stuck at home for the next few days or the next few weeks – they can be just as productive as they are in the office. Do you know how to launch a remote work model for your business?
If coronavirus continues to spread at the rate it has been in the last few weeks, at some point soon you will have to tell your staff to work from home.
Do you know how to keep them productive when they can’t come into the office?
Without the right IT solutions in place, many businesses are having to choose their employees’ health over their business’.
In order to limit the spread of coronavirus, our nation has to work together, practicing something called “social distancing”. Canceling large gatherings, and limiting your staff’s exposure at the office will be more and more important as time goes on.
While this practice may be effective for slowing the spread of coronavirus, it will undoubtedly be detrimental to businesses across the country. A majority of these organizations are not configured to support staff members as they work from home. With little to no time to get prepared, many businesses are scrambling to set up the right technologies and keep their staff working.
Have you figured out your coronavirus continuity plan?
The right course of action is to have a conversation with each employee who will be working from home and have them send information regarding their computers, smartphones, and internet connection over to you.
If you need to upgrade any devices or services (such as mobile data plans or internet packages), start doing so as soon as possible. For internet connections, you may also choose to provide corporate-owned smartphones with data packages that can be tethered to computers.
It’s understandable if you’re overwhelmed by the idea of launching remote work capabilities right now. You’re short on time and staff, and you may not have the skills or knowledge to begin with, and that’s OK.
