2022 is just around the corner. Businesses have faced a lot of uncertainties over the past two years. How can you stay on top of the game in 2022?
Keep up with COVID-19
Keeping up with COVID doesn’t sound like a particularly easy task. While no one can predict exactly how things will develop in 2022, it is an absolute must to stay up to date with the government’s COVID protection framework. This will help to keep your business running as usual as much as possible during these uncertain times. Make sure staff are set up to work remotely if they need to do so and have health and safety measures in place at work. Don’t wait for things to happen before responding – prepare well ahead of time.
Virtual communication via Zoom, Teams or other applications and cloud based document storage have been front and center of most companies’ business strategies. This has allowed staff meetings as well as client and supplier communications to keep flowing freely despite travel and gathering restrictions. Make use of digital tools and social media where possible and show your customers you are up to speed with things!
Be flexible with work arrangements
More and more employees need and appreciate flexibility around their work arrangements. Whether it be the location or working hours, if you can give flexibility it will most likely affect staff retention in a positive way. Quality of life and being able to spend more time with family and friends and focus on wellbeing has played a big role during the pandemic.
