Currently we are facing the threat of the Coronavirus which is sweeping all across the world. In the U.S we are dealing with the possibility of a mandatory quarantine which means all of us if not most will be working from home. With that happening the working routines, and communication will be affected. There are concerns and uncertainty around the pandemic and how it will affect the small business and economy as a whole. Managing your team big or small will require some adjustments and flexibility to adapt to this situation over the new few weeks or longer.
Here are some ways small business employers can create a Work from Home Guidelines. Work may continue as usual in terms of customer calling and appointment setting, and sales. However, creating guidelines for employees helps to ensure everyone understands your requirements during this time.
Not all small businesses have the ability to allow employees to work from home based on the type of work they do. However, utilizing a Work from Home Policy will help to keep employees responsible and accountable for their jobs while they are temporarily working from home.
