Updated: Apr 14, 2020
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to major changes to daily life in Malta and Gozo.
It is absolute, that the situation here will keep changing.
So, with that in mind here are some ideas to help small businesses cope during the pandemic we would like to bring forward. 1 - Staying Healthy
No, we do not mean 100 laps around your kitchen if you are working from home, or jogging to the work if you are able to keep your office open. What we mean by healthy is hygiene, mature social-distancing from colleagues, having some employees work from home if possible. 2 - Monitoring The Situation
Every 12:30pm unless specified otherwise, Maltese audiences all tune in to the update given regarding Covid-19 and how it is affecting Malta.
It is important to keep up to date with the situation here and it's also important to stay up to date with the government’s response to the situation.
We advise you to check in with respected news sources and government websites on a regular basis so you understand what’s happening and what may happen soon. It is also worth mentioning news from abroad.
If your business deals with foreign companies, it is imperative to stay up to date with foreign news.
3 - Keeping In Touch With Your Clients
Are you implementing changes with the way your business operates due to the restriction Covid-19 has brought with it?
You should let your clients know in advance before actioning such changes. It also boosts your relationship with your customers, after all there are humans behind your business, and it's nice to remind your clients that we are in this together.
4 - Evolving What we mean by evolve is; are there things in your to-do list which you keep rolling over? Are you maybe considering changing the way you operate or potentially double-taking on a business target you were aiming to achieve?
This is a fantastic opportunity to establish if your business could do with improvement in certain areas which might have been neglected.
How can you mitigate your business being affected by such an instance of a global pandemic? A good method of investing in your business is by getting quality insurance coverage and optimum premiums.
