Whatever your profession, it’s safe to say that the COVID-19 pandemic upended your day-to-day work routine this year. From office towers in cities to restaurants and retailers in the suburbs, nearly every business has had to make significant changes to its daily operations to accommodate customer safety, boost employee morale, and follow evolving public health guidelines.
While there are reasons to be optimistic about 2021, businesses across the region must do all they can to prepare themselves to succeed ahead of time. With that in mind, here are 3 ways business owners, operators, and managers can prepare their workplaces for success in 2021.
1. Grow Your Digital Workplace
One of the biggest challenges for businesses this year was the sudden switch to a work-from-home culture. Almost overnight, entire organizations and their employees had to adjust to new tools and tactics to keep operations running while staying safe. Working from home – or at least, outside of a shared workplace – is a trend that seems poised to continue in 2021. For employers, that means doubling down on the technology and culture that enables employees to do their best work remotely. Updating work from home policies, creating new communications processes, and leveraging collaborative tools can go a long way in helping your business start the new year off strong.
2. Prioritize Real World Safety
Of course, not all businesses can move to a remote work culture so easily. Retailers, restaurants, and other businesses that provide goods and services still depend on direct relationships with customers to continue operating. For those businesses, getting ready for 2021 means re-evaluating what the customer experience looks like when health and safety is the top priority. A good place to start is to check out this workplace safety guide. Here you’ll find some smart ways to adapt your business. Offering new services, like online ordering and curb-side pickup of products are additional ways businesses like these can ensure they are ready to do well.
