We have no idea when the lockdown will end, of course. Or how any kind of phased return will work.
But we do know it WILL happen. So it makes sense to be as prepared for it as you can be (those businesses that were fully prepared for working from home had a much less stressful experience when the lockdown started).
There are three areas to consider:
- People: If it’s a phased end to lockdown, you might have some people at work and some still working from home. You need a plan for every scenario
- Hardware and software: What’s been difficult during lockdown? What’s caused frustration? What needs to be upgraded or changed?
- Data: Now’s the time to check your data security hasn’t been compromised in any way, by all the recent unplanned changes to your setup.
If you need help pulling your “end of lockdown” plan together, or making it happen quickly and efficiently, we can help.
