Article written by Bob Green, Business Advisor, Western Sydney Business Centre

In my last article I wrote about the need to strategize what our businesses are going to evolve into in the continuing covid19 environment.

The 2020 year is looking rather disastrous for everyone; but humans are remarkably adaptable to all sorts of situations.  And our businesses can be just as adaptable, with a little effort.

 The one thing we have to accept, while ever there is no vaccine, is that there is no solution outside of proper social distancing.  For those of us who are able to move our business on-line, that is not a problem.  For those who can’t, then you need to spend some time planning how you can run your business in a worst-case scenario.

There is no general advice that can be given because each business is unique. But, its time to step back and see what you do in your business.  Ask questions about it like, what part can I move to on line, what part can be safely accessed under a worst case scenario, what value can I add to my business which will set me apart, how do I retain valuable staff, and so on?

In addition, spend time looking on the Services NSW site to see what support is available to you to allow you to retain staff and transition to the new way of doing business.  Both the State and Commonwealth Governments have put some valuable supports in place you should be utilizing, don’t be a hero.

Additionally, you have advisors available through the Business Connect program. Go to the Business Connect website, look for Western Sydney Business Centre advisor bios and book a call back from one of the advisors.
