Government officials will soon be easing Shelter in Place restrictions. Now what? SAVE YOUR CASH!! Now more than ever, BizX is the tool you need to help re-emerge into the new post Shelter in Place world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the strength and resiliency of business owners like no other event in the century. At no time, has the economy had to, simultaneously, deal with both a health and economic disaster? As entrepreneurs, we have all had to learn how to embrace change like never before and pivot at lightening speed. The team at BizX is both motivated and inspired by the brave and challenging steps BizX members have taken to both prepare their business to survive Shelter in Place and pivot toward new and innovative ideas to prepare for what will certainly be an altered new business landscape.
Things are likely to be different after the mandatory shutdowns and restrictions on businesses are lifted. The expectation is that we will ease back into the new normal. Think of it as slowly turning up a dimmer switch vs flipping on a light switch. There may be crowd limits and social distancing practices that continue long after businesses are allowed to reopen. This is the time to think about how you might need to change your business or shift your focus to address the changes that are likely to occur in the wake of COVID-19.
Is your workplace clean, I mean really clean? The CDC has released guidance for cleaning and disinfecting public spaces, workplaces, businesses, etc. They recommend that you should maintain routine cleaning and disinfection procedures after reopening to reduce potential for exposure.
Did you know you can hire a cleaning service on BizX to give your space a deep cleansing and then schedule regular weekly cleanings. What other areas can BizX be used to save cash as the lights of your business slowly brighten? Will you need any sort of face masks to keep your employees and customer protected? How’s the quality of the air in your work environment? Do you need an HVAC company to install high efficiency air filters and/or increase the ventilation?
