To promote the best possible work environment while helping to slow the spread of COVID-19, experts recommend distributors:
- Prioritize regular and consistent staff communication using a system that employees are already familiar with.
- Know the bandwidth of your work-from-home staffers’ technology and adjust accordingly.
- To keep employees who can’t work from home safe, consider splitting them into teams and scheduling them to work at different times.
- Discourage the spread of the virus by periodically checking with your staff about their health and encouraging them to stay home if they are sick.
