The novel coronavirus has upended the way we live and will likely result in drastic and permanent changes in our society.
In these uncertain times, BluEnt is extending a helping hand with large discounts (particularly for the healthcare industry), donations to charities, FAQs on keeping your business engine running in the midst of this pandemic, and links to sites that will help you occupy your time.
The coronavirus pandemic has rendered our traditional performance-measuring metrics largely irrelevant.
A solution to this, according to McKinsey & Company, is to practice these 5 steps:
Amid the chaos, it can be difficult to know exactly what to do. We suggest the following:
Footfall has steeply declined in local stores as more and more customers have chosen to stay at home and self-quarantine. It is natural to worry that the impact of the pandemic on buying patterns will be deep and long-lasting.
We’ve compiled some tips to keep your customers engaged – from a distance, of course.
COVID-19’s impact on the AEC industry is still not entirely clear. Markets are fluctuating, architects and modelers are working from home, and several construction sites have closed. Commercial real estate could be upended. Short-term credit issues are bound to occur.
The New Department of Homeland Security, however, has clarified the role construction plays in essential infrastructure.
As of 27th March, across much of the country employees are working from home, but tradespeople are still coming to sites; this, however, is changing.
There are some who opine that, after the shock has subsided, many people will want to live in a house – this is something to keep your eyes on. There is also a possibility of a decline for demand for office spaces in the future.
Lastly, if the government decides to put the US into ‘lockdown’, more closures and delays will occur.
Money is tight these days for most people. With this tactic, your customers are less likely to dispense with your services.
A lot more people are going to remain online over the next few weeks, constantly checking updates about the virus and the economy. Engaging copywriting is one of your best bets when it comes to a competitive advantage.
Making money while you sleep is what products are for. From e-books to online courses, products can come in varying forms.
Right now, many businesses are scrambling to sell as much as they used to. Without automation, you will be swimming against the tide.
Offering discounts and incentives will help draw in new customers and pique the interest of old ones.
Ask yourself these questions: Can you weather a few more poor quarters? Do you have a contingency plan? Plan accordingly.
After the dust settles, your employees will remember who was on their side. Protect them. Ask them how they are. Remain up to date on changing laws so you can be well informed about how to take care of them.
Work in a room, alone, behind a closed door. Use the correct furniture. Sitting at your desk is a better option than getting a backache triggered by working on the bed. Keep your space neat and organized and ensure that you have a wall that suits a video call.
Communicate efficiently with your manager. Come up with a plan that makes clear expectations of updates and conveying changes to one another. Do the same with anyone you usually with collaboratively with during the day.
Checking updates on COVID-19 is a natural urge for most people right now. While it is good to stay informed, it may be better to set a slot for news – for instance, after you have finished work, or during lunchtime.
Think about it: a lot of your social interactions occur at the office. When everyone abruptly jumps on the WFH bandwagon, they are suddenly left without as much socialization. Combat this by talking with your coworkers or friends over video chat. Seeing friendly faces helps!
And considering you’re here, you might also be wondering: Along this rocky road, how do I get the finest CAD and IT services at the best prices? Lucky for you, BluEnt’s talented and enthusiastic team is just a click away.
We all know it, and never has it been more prevalent than in the wake of COVID-19 and the ensuing lockdowns. It can be a mere annoyance, but in the context of a global pandemic can spell adverse effects for mental health.
