  1. Payroll– Will you take advantage of the Commonwealth scheme to retain a great team, stand down employees, reduce hours or payroll, issue redundancies or explore other options?
  2. Policies– Working from home is an effective option for some, however, it can raise issues such as Work Health and Safety, privacy, confidentiality, the protection of intellectual property issues and work place surveillance. Putting aside the question of technology, do you have the right policies and processes in place to handle the issues of flexible working?
  3. Productivity– Maintain productivity and streamline workflows. Look at your business model, are there positions which are now redundant or leverage you could obtain through technology or blended roles? Job descriptions may need to be updated and organisational charts re-configured. This is an opportunity for the business to reshape to best thrive for the future.
