LONDON - March 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Corona Virus - Business Checklist for COVID-19

Depending on the nature of the business/industry, businesses will have different challenges to face, but one thing is for sure it will affect all in some way.

Here's a series of prompts to help business owners with the areas they might need to be considering:

Staff

• Are staff taking all necessary precautions in terms of hand washing etc?
• How will staff sickness/self-isolation affect the smooth running of the business?
• Is there a contingency to keep trading with fewer staff or can you bring in temporary staff?
• If you have to lay staff off or reduce working hours etc, what is in your staff contracts that covers this?
• If you are forced to close due to Government 'Lockdown' where do you stand in terms of paying staff during closure?

Suppliers

• How robust is your supply chain for your goods and services?
• Are there likely to be supply delays? If so, how much stock do you hold? How long can you trade without new stock?
• Are there alternative suppliers?
• Are suppliers increasing prices due to the crisis?
• Do you import? If so what are the implications of late/no deliveries for several months?

Communicating Effectively With Customers

• Are you and your staff reassuring customers by "words and deeds" that you are doing all you can and will deliver as normal?
• Will customers be putting spending plans on hold?
• How are you communicating any changes to your customers?
• Is there an additional/alternative service you can offer to clients at this difficult time?
• Are there customers of yours who would be classified as 'high risk' at the moment that you can go the extra mile for? (The authors local shop is currently holding back some supplies of toilet rolls for their elderly/at risk customers)
• If you export, what changes can you foresee, delays, restrictions etc?
• How is customer behaviour affecting you now and likely to over the coming months?
