COVID-19 has kept most employees out of the office for a year. Vaccines, however, will make it safe to bring them back, and in the process help restore our economy. But the big question is, what about the employees who will decide not to get vaccinated for personal reasons? How should employers walk that slippery slope?


Prep Your Business Continuity Plan Before You Need It

If there is anything 2020 has taught us, perhaps emergency preparedness is the biggest lesson ever. The coronavirus pandemic has taught us the importance of having emergency preparedness and the need to have a plan that will keep the business running during and after a crisis. Emergency preparedness is not a one-day affair. It is a process that does not just involve a single drill once a year but entails planning how a business will run, before, during, and after a crisis. The process begins with identifying possible business threats or disruptors and developing plans to counter them. Here are some common business disruptors to watch:

Get Your Small Business Ready for Year-End 2020

The end of the year is here finally, and businesses are doing all they can to make to most out of the festive season. Although it is tough making sure that you have covered all the bases correctly, year-end should not be a stressful time. In fact, year-end should be a perfect time for you to reorganize and plan for the next year. The truth is that it can sometimes be challenging.  However, as long as you plan ahead and get your organization ready, things can be different, and you may find this season interesting. We have put together some tips that might help you prepare for the year-end with ease.


A Strategy for Small Businesses

Small business owners have a lot in their plates. From trying to find a market for their products or services to attempting to woo a new customer to join their small customer base, being a small business owner is like signing up to be ever busy and aggressive. Because you may find yourself working every day of the week, you may end up mixing things or forgetting important work altogether. Contrary to the misconception by many small business owners that the smaller the organization, the lower they need a strategic plan, your SME requires a strategy regardless of its size. A strategy can help you know what you have done well, what needs more of your attention and whether your daily operations are growing your company. Here are some of the leading reasons why your small business requires a strategy.


Bulletproof Your Small Business Plan

Business plans are among the most critical components of any business. Unfortunately, although having a business plan is critical, many businesses have plans that are not worth showing to potential funders or printing at all. Most of these poorly thought business plans have some things in common, as shown below:


Recover Your Small Business after COVID-19

The coronavirus pandemic has wrecked many industries across the globe, leaving many companies and individuals struggling to survive. Although almost all businesses, both big and small, have been affected by the pandemic, small ones have encountered the most damage. According to a report filed by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), as early as March 30th, that was early in the crisis, 92% of small businesses had already suffered significantly from the effects of the pandemic. Only 5% of small business owners had not experienced the challenges yet. Nine months into the pandemic, most of the small businesses that had not been affected are now counting losses with others having to shut down completely.


Remote Working (WFH) is Quickly Becoming a Viable Alternative

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, there is something odd that is taking place. There is a growing disagreement on how the future of the workplace will look like. While some professionals believe that the workplace will still be done in the office, many people are beginning to see otherwise. It is fast emerging that the future of the workplace is remote working. After COVID-19 forced organizations to shut their physical offices and shifted to working from home, it has emerged that remote working is a viable alternative for many companies.


Upgrade Your Video Conference Solution and Bring Back the Fun

During an already stressful time for many organizations, planning a virtual meeting can be overwhelming. Logistics quickly become headaches: Did everyone receive the meeting invite? Will they all be there on time? Add technical issues like crashing video calls, using multiple digital tools for one meeting or scrambling to locate documents, and a meeting becomes a recipe for headaches. This has made meetings tougher and also robbed them of fun and productivity.
