How to Prepare Your Workplace for Success in 2021

How to Prepare Your Workplace for Success in 2021

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.

How to Sterilize Your Home or Office with Almost Zero Downtime

How to Sterilize Your Home or Office with Almost Zero Downtime

Whether you’re spending more time at home or continuing to go to an office this winter, everyone deserves peace of mind knowing that their environment is safe for themselves, their families, and their coworkers. Knowing that your space is free from germs, viruses, and bacteria will allow you to focus on what matters most this season.

There are several ways that homes, offices, and businesses can be sterilized to offer protection from dangerous pathogens. Here are a few things to keep in mind when wanting to decontaminate your home or office, including one option that offers virtually no downtime.

At Home

Your home should be your safe haven, a place of rest. It is important to remember that disinfection is crucial to reducing the risk of virus transmission for everyone in the home. Start with the little things. Ensuring everyone washes their hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds can reduce the spread of pathogens. Going one step further, cleaning frequently touched surfaces  like tables, doorknobs, light switches, and appliances with soap and water can reduce the number of germs, dirt, and impurities on those surfaces.

But this alone is not a complete solution, as germs may remain on surfaces at home despite taking these actions. Using disinfectants on surfaces around the house can do more to kill germs, but depending on the type of disinfectant used and how, it can be very difficult to ensure every surface is thoroughly sterilized from dangerous pathogens.

At Work

Outside of the home, offices and workplaces can be susceptible to the spread of viruses and pathogens. These spaces include office buildings, retailers, restaurants, schools, and entertainment complexes – areas that are frequented by crowds. Keeping the workplace clean while it’s open means keeping your customers safe and happy. While some of these spaces may have dedicated cleaning services that attend to them, the volume and frequency of people passing through can make them difficult to keep sterilized on a regular basis. Moreover, providing a deep clean to offices, businesses, and retailers through these traditional means can lead to significant downtime, potentially hurting the organization’s productivity and profitability.

How to Sterilize Your Space with Almost No Downtime

Whether you’re staying home or going to work, there is one way you can sterilize your space against dangerous pathogens in a way that is fast, effective, and has virtually no downtime: SteraMist®.
