  • How to support employees before reopening your business


    From Inc. Magazine

    Like many business owners across the U.S., you’re probably grappling with how and when to reopen. Whether your employees will be able to show up when you’re ready is another matter. Workers that have to stay home for childcare reasons can be entitled to up to 10 weeks of paid leave. The costs of paying these employees are reimbursable, but what are you to do in the meantime? 

    Inc.’s exclusive National Small Business Town Hall recently put these questions and many more to a panel of business experts. One of best pieces of advice from the conversation was to stay in frequent communication with your workers, even if your business is closed. "You can't go dark during this period no matter the situation you're in," says Alissa Henriksen, co-president of recruiting firm Grey Search + Strategy. 

    Your employees are likely wondering about their future at your company, and there are a multitude of ways you can support them--even if you have questions yourself.
