Relearning to Tie Your Shoelaces: How Do Businesses Start Over After the Pandemic

Relearning to Tie Your Shoelaces: How Do Businesses Start Over After the Pandemic

It's hard to think about starting over after the pandemic. It seems impossible, but it can be done. We want to help you do it.

Businesses have a lot of work to do in the aftermath of an epidemic, pandemic, or natural disaster. They must re-establish their supply chains and find new markets. They need to rebuild their workforce from scratch.

This is not always easy; many employees are gone after such events. But there are some steps that can be taken before and during these times that will help make rebuilding easier. The sooner you begin taking proactive measures on your own behalf, the more prepared you'll be when it comes time to start over.

Rebuild your team.

You'll need people to help keep things moving and get you ready for a new way of doing business.

Understand that people are scared to venture back outside. They may also be recovering from the loss of a loved one or may have fallen ill themselves. The time frame between when you reopen your doors and when true business activity is restored can be lengthy.

Your employees need reassurance that they will not contract the disease by returning to work, so let them know you have taken steps to ensure their safety.

You may also want to have a printed handout of new health and safety guidelines for those who are on the fence about returning.

Reform your networks.

You need people to help you rebuild your supply chains, find new markets, and reestablish your foothold in the industry. As the old song goes "you'll get by with a little help from your friends".

After the pandemic, you'll need all the help you can get back on your feet. True, operations may not be at 100% but that's a big improvement than grinding to a halt in 2020. No matter how slow, progress is still good.

The sooner people are encouraged to resume "business as usual" the better it is for everyone. Having people outside doing their normal routines offers some sense of normalcy — and some people would like to hold on to that hope that things will return to the way it was pre-COVID.

Reopen your business.

There's no better feeling than watching the first customers walk in the door after months of being shuttered. Welcome them like you would a long-lost friend.

You'll be relying on their loyalty and understanding in case things don't run like a well-oiled machine at first. If it doesn't cause too much of a strain on the budget, offer discounts or freebies with every visit or purchase. It's a simple way of showing your customers how much you appreciate them.

Retrace your steps

What was your old routine like?

With every passing day, it will get easier to do business as usual even in the face of uncertainty. You'll be back to square one — but better for having gone through the process. Businesses will never be the same again, but that doesn't mean you can't start over. Follow these tips and get back on your feet as smoothly as possible. For businesses, it's all about re-building. That may take time, but you'll have plenty of time to get it done. Let's keep commerce moving and get the economy of the world back on track.
