It’s been just over a year since the first case of COVID-19 appeared in the U.S. We’ve dealt with lockdowns, shutdowns, remote work, virtual schooling, and countless of hours on Zoom.
Through it all, many businesses implemented changes and adopted techniques maintain customer confidence and generate new opportunities.
While vaccines are ending some restrictions, there are changes business owners should consider extending or even making permanent post-pandemic.
- Stricter cleanliness standards. The pandemic has opened our eyes to how quickly and easily germs can spread. As such, customers and employees will continue to demand thorough and frequent cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting.
- Provide a safe and controlled environment. Masks and social distancing will likely be required for several more months. Unfortunately, tempers sometimes flare over the topic of masks and personal freedoms. It’s best to hire trained private security teams to enforce safety measures. Let your employees focus on thoughtfully serving customers.
- Working from home. One of the biggest trends to come from the pandemic has been the shift toward a flexible work work environment. Many employers and employees have completely embraced the work-from-home alternative, creating a new normal.
We’re finally starting to see a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Yet, businesses will continue to implement innovative solutions to survive and thrive in this next phase. Contact SFM Services to support your efforts.
