Reclaiming Control as a Small Business Owner

November 11, 2020

This crazy ride on the COVIDcoaster feels never-ending. Just when things seem to be entering the final curve, out of nowhere comes another round of ups and downs: new capacity limits, redefined social distancing rules, ever-changing definitions of what constitutes close contact, what symptoms to watch for. Add to that more uncertainty with what is going on with our government, both locally and nationally, and how that will impact all of the different laws, regulations, funding, etc., that may have very real impacts on us all. It can be overwhelming and, as a business owner, can make you feel like you have no control.

But there are some things you can do to take some of that back. Putting together workplace policies, procedures, and checklists will help ensure that you are poised to answer the endless stream of employee and customer questions. Also making sure that your policies are updated with the most current laws that impact you and your business, while having some flexibility to pivot as things will inevitably change again.

Some things you can think about as you craft these policies:

  • Do I know where to direct my employees for questions related to COVID concerns/exposures?
  • Do I know my capacity limits and spacing logistics under different scenarios?
  • Have I figured out how to cover work/shifts in the event of last minute changes?
  • What is my plan when my employees or customers fall into the “possible exposure” category?

Addressing these questions and so many more related topics as well as having a flexible plan/response will make you feel more in control. Need help getting all of that done? I am here to help!
