The global pandemic has changed, well, everything.
Which is why we’ve spent the last 10 months educating our customers on the importance of cleaning and sanitizing, and how those two actions can help you maintain a safe and healthy home.
But we haven’t really said much to our business customers.
While some of that is intentional (i.e. we are still navigating through some unknowns with certain types of businesses still being closed), some of it was because we wanted to make sure we knew exactly what to say.
So, as we head into 2021, we wanted to provide our business customers with 4 procedural insights you can implement that will help you operate safely, protecting your customers and employees.
Here they are.
In business operations, directions matter. Okay, we realize that this statement is quite vague, so let us clarify. When it comes to running your business in 2021, it’s important that you follow two directional rules when possible. They include:
As we just mentioned, it’s important to clean with directional intention. However, it’s also important that organizations implement routine, thorough cleaning, if they haven’t already. So, as your business heads into 2021, think about the following items, and who takes care of them. It may be time to call a professional.
While this list doesn’t represent all of the types of cleaning services your business or it’s professional partner should be performing, we hope it gets you thinking about what should be involved in your routine, thorough cleaning.
If we’ve learned anything in 2020, it’s that even our most intentional efforts can sometimes come up short. Thus, it’s crucial that your business plans for an outbreak to occur in 2021; especially if your business is 3-20 people in size (as an outbreak can leave you quite vulnerable). In planning for this outbreak, here are a few items for you to consider implementing:
Finally, it’s important that your business be flexible in 2021. While we can plan our best for what’s ahead, there are many unknowns when it comes to operating through a pandemic. So, be flexible and keep your eyes and ears open to what others are recommending (or not recommending). We recommend keeping an eye on what the CDC and WHO recommend, and keeping open conversations with your best referral networks.
This year has changed how many businesses operate.
Our hope is that with these recommendations, you’ll be even more prepared to operate in 2021.
