While business is slow, you can use the time to figure out what you can streamline for when your business is back in action.

streamline for when your business is back in action.For starters, identify what processes you can automateTasks you have to do frequently or on a scheduleTasks that involve moving information between appsBoring tasks that don’t require higher-order thinkingTasks that take you away from what you really want to be doingAutomating your processes will help you now if you’re short-staffed, but it’ll also pay dividends in the long run.

For those of us who have had to lay off our employees due to full closure, what recommendations do you have for reengagement once we relaunch?
Don Maruska
55:46
Do you have examples of businesses that have reconfigured how they work that they can pursue long term so that people can work remotely, not commute so much, and have better work-life balance?
Sue McIntyre
56:43
We have weekly zoom happy hours and text every couple days.
Don Maruska

How do you engage hourly employees who aren't working in the planning process?
Don Maruska
59:34
Would business owners need to pay hourly employees for their brainstorming on planning to reopen? Could be tough for businesses shut down.
Sue McIntyre
01:00:00
Yes! What Don said!
Stephanie Stackhouse
01:02:08
really good! thank you - yes, good for ongoing business continuity planning

It’s not something I’m comfortable with—asking for them to do work without $$ compensation. They are also collecting unemployment and I wouldn’t want to interfere with that. I’m thinking more when we ramp up again—but before we really have enough work for them.

If you receive PPP funds, using employees for planning can keep them working and officially employed and go toward the forgivable portion of the loan.

On the marketing front--my situation is a little different. I'm a start-up physical therapy clinic and my scheduled opening coincided with the shelter in place order and has essentially delayed things. How can I effectively market to generate clients for once the order is lifted?
