Get Real About the New Normal
Everyone wants to kill the CoronaVirus, but no one wants to let the CoronaVirus kill their business! Some businesses have been hit a lot harder than others. Face it, it’s not easy, fast or free to adapt your product or service to the new normal. Retooling a company for something like this doesn’t happen overnight or without some hard work and financial investment.
There have been some great efforts out there that are innovative
I saw one company that normally provides products and services for tradeshows come up with some great solutions for their clients. They have produced floor signage for social distancing, media backgrounds for people doing online meetings or broadcasts and modular walls to help separate workspaces. With events and tradeshows cancelled, what a great way to provide needed products and keep their business going!
We are all going to need to adapt and innovate our products and services to the new normal because it is unlikely that business-as-usual is coming back anytime soon. It will be more important than ever to get your team on board. They need to understand your goals and buy into it in order to make any progress in accomplishing this massive change. Communicating with your staff will help them be committed to your success; something you are going to need in the coming months. You may find the new normal to be almost like creating a start-up. Framing it this way may actually excite your employees to be part of something new. You have the structure already; you can focus on modifying your product or service.
Another big piece of the new normal is safety for your employees and customers
We’ve all watched as essential businesses have struggled to adjust and keep everyone safe. Without confidence that the environment is safe, your employees won’t want to come back to work. And, your customers will be uneasy about doing business with you. No matter what the status of government regulations for opening up, you will not get customers coming in the door unless they feel comfortable and safe.
Consistently follow the current regulations in addition to establishing your company’s best practices for avoiding virus infection. Not all customers (or employees for that matter) will want to cooperate. There are lots of opinions out there – many of them extremely on one side or the other. Especially when it comes to face masks. Decide now how you are going to handle these issues and follow through consistently. Stay abreast of changing protocol and keep your employees updated both verbally and with signage. The new normal is an adjustment, but making the best of it may bring some surprising new ideas.
Partnering with a CRA (Consumer Reporting Agency) with the services you need to fill in your HR gaps can be an economical solution that also helps you stay in compliance. The right CRA partner can help you recruit, integrate your system, perform background checks, provide education and license verification, drug testing at convenient locations, and support throughout the process.
Feel confident that you are bringing the best hire into your company by having done due diligence both legally and ethically for your employees and customers. A professional CRA partner pays for itself by avoiding costly hiring mistakes. For a free consultation or more information, contact Genesis Background Screening Services at 866 944-0041 ext 101.
