As businesses start to open up in the coming months, it’s important to have a clear client and employee communication plan to show what you’re doing to keep them safe. As soon as businesses open, the question at the top of employees and customers’ minds will be: is this building safe to enter? Your business’s success depends on making sure they know it’s safe.
Not only that, but you’ll also need to provide a valuable strategy to keep your building sanitary while employee and client foot-traffic steadily increases. In order to unlock your potential in continuing to beat COVID-19 post-pandemic, there are a few steps and strategies you should enforce.
