Key Take-Aways

Here are a few items we’ve learned from our business that you can initiate today:

  1. Understand how your employees will react during a crisis and work diligently to ensure that your company culture can endure throughout it with proper planning
  2. The tech side is necessary so make sure your systems have been tested and are ready to go
  3. Clear and concise communications are extremely important. Research the best tools that are available for your business
  4. Check in regularly with your team and make sure everyone feels supported
  5. Bosses should regularly ask, ‘How can I help you?” and be ready with workarounds and solutions

Where’s That File?

Using cloud-based software applications (Called SaaS in the business, or software as a service), we are able to interact with all of our client work through an encrypted firewall. While our transition to the cloud began long before now, this experience has proven to us that getting things in a digital format early help the process run smoothly.

We usually encourage all business owners to begin crisis planning long before any crisis occurs but now that we’re in it, be aware of all of the options available to you, and begin your transition now.

I am a CPA and Shareholder at Casey Neilon. In this role, I provide business and tax consulting for small to medium sized businesses and individuals. I have been serving clients in this capacity since 2013. My experiences have taught me about the challenges that a small business owner faces on a day-to-day basis and just how valuable it can be to that business owner to have trusted advisors they can regularly call on for advice and guidance.
