what you should consider.
To date, the COVID-19 health crisis has led to lockdowns for 2.7 billion workers around the world. That’s approximately 81% of the world’s workforce. The economic impact of such a widespread disruption is unlike anything ever experienced in modern history. Every day that businesses remain closed represents lost income that will never be recovered for workers and companies. Understandably, organisations are eager to return to work and establish a new post-COVID-19 normal.
Before that can happen, there are several factors that must be considered. Most importantly, the government and public health experts must determine that it’s safe to reopen. Once we reach that point, businesses may begin to resume operations.
To prepare your business for safe reopening, a rock-solid strategy plan is important. Businesses must be strategic in determining when and how they reopen. Being too hasty or neglecting to take the required safety measures could lead to an even more devastating second wave of COVID-19. When people’s lives and income streams are at risk, it’s critical that businesses carefully evaluate the risks of reopening and take every precaution to minimise further instability.
