Health, Safety and Environment
The COVID-19 pandemic brings numerous concerns for humanity. With a few exceptions, all businesses are suffering from this virus that has crippled almost everything. However, the question for which I couldn’t find any satisfactory answer is: how will companies survive this killer virus, and how can they confront its unavoidable threats?
To answer this tough question and fight that disease, I conducted some research and found many ideas and formulas. So, I decided to share with you my take based on my personal experience. To do so, I used the virus itself. Now, do not get me wrong: I did not find a cure for “CORONA”, even though I wish I did. What I did was use the name of that virus, COVID, as an acronym for the set of responses to this threat. So, without further due, here are my five personal advices for businesses in the time of COVID-19:
To conclude on a positive note, there are more than nineteen thousand reasons why individuals and organizations should remain safe and even close temporarily to survive this pandemic. And, if organizations follow my five advice, then maybe (and I am insisting on the word “maybe”) they can survive these hard moments. So, try my COVID to survive the COVID-19 and hopefully 2020 will not end as bleak as it started.
