Our most recent member survey found that 52 percent of our businesses are currently open with restrictions in place. Most employees are working from home either part time or full time. However, with nearly 40 percent of the city having begun the vaccination process, we are closer than ever to reopening fully.
Things to consider:
1. Revise your business plan — you may even want to create a brand-new plan prioritizing health and safety.
2. Practice open communication with employees, clients and vendors.
3. Be adaptable. Prepare for obstacles and strategize based on feedback from your team and community members.
