As the UK and other countries and cities start to ease lockdown restrictions, this handy checklist for reopening business workplaces can help you jumpstart safe and efficient returns to work, and kick-starting of business.
You and your users have been quarantined in your homes for the past few days weeks months, and now
authorities are looking to lift restrictions and open up. You may be thinking, “We’ll be back soon, and I can get out of this house!” The problem is, if you just pick up and go, and don’t prepare for having people back in the workplace, you may run into issues that could have been easily avoided. So now is the time to prepare.
This checklist is not meant to be an exhaustive list, but it can help provide guidance as you look to reopen. It’s
organised into four sections:
- Your Customers
Every company’s situation is of course unique, but evaluating your plan with these components in mind can help you get organised and anticipate obstacles that may stand in the way.
Extra security layers for collaboration tools
As you can read in the Technology section of the checklist, many users have been using Microsoft Teams for collaborating with colleagues during the lockdown period. Yet one in three users experience data loss in cloud applications like Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite.
With more and more businesses now using the Microsoft Office 365 suite of tools, it’s more and more vital to ensure that your data is adequately backed up to avoid accidental loss, or the risk of being held to ransom for your own data.
We’ve pulled together a list of 4 reasons to add an additional layer such as Datto SaaS protection to your organisation’s data, and this video outlines Datto’s SaaS protection services in a little more detail.
