COVID 19 and what the new ‘normal’ may look like for businesses and retailers across the UK and Europe
A message for the director,
As I am sure you can imagine, if you’re reading this as a business owner, like you, I too have had many questions and concerns over the present events and what could be the aftermath of COVID-19.
Almost all of us in business, large or small find ourselves firmly placed within the new territory, full of rapid twists and turns and, in some cases, darkness leading to a complete shut down of business almost overnight. We never saw it coming and so never considered it to be a factor in our business environments.
Change can come into our lives as a result of a crisis, as a result of choice or just by chance. In either situation, we are all faced with having to make a choice – do we make the change or not? COVID-19 will be one for the history books no doubt and so, it is up to all of us, as business owners to adapt and ensure from our combined and collective efforts, we come together in supporting each other through this current storm.
As a result of COVID-19 our agency has had to adapt in supporting our loyal clients as one would expect but, we knew and felt that we could go a little further in supporting not only our clients but also, as managing consultants – being on had to offer advice and guidance to all that needed it.
Over the last month, our agency has been in touch with a number of experts business leaders from various sectors around the globe to help produce a comprehensive set of guidelines we believe may enable business owners to plan ahead in preparation for the return back to work ensuring that safety, remains the top priority for all.
Initially, we wanted to create a document for ourselves and one that we would share with our clients however, we have decided to share the information we have collated to anyone that may find it useful.
I hope that we all find a new togetherness as a result of COVID-19 and wish you all a safe and speedy return back to business soon.
