Cutting Back The Unnecessary Costs
Letting Go of Some Employees
Your first job as a business owner to cut back the extra cost, which you think is not necessary for your business and also additional employees that you hired. It’s better that you let them go for the short term. Even if you don’t want to cut back your employees? You can go with a different route that mostly every single business owner and even the government these days is adapting, which is cutting half of the salary of your employees.
A Necessary Step For Your Employees and Your Company
If you are thinking that it is harsh or unfair to your employees, then you are entirely wrong. Right now, during this global crisis, almost everything is shut down unless you are providing everyday survival essential to society. You know what precisely that means that every individual can only purchase necessities, and there is no way that your employees can go and shop for their secondary needs, which can be delayed until this whole situation with COVID-19 settles down.
This way, you are not only securing your company’s future from the debt, but you are also saving your employees from unemployment if your business will not be able to withstand and thrive during this crisis. By executing this idea, your business is not only going to have the cash to survive the present short-term situation, but your company’s future will also be secured.
Becoming Versatile For The Sake of Your Business Future
- Now, as I was saying in my last point that these days every individual is only allowed to buy essentials from the market, the only businesses which are running these days are a grocery store, medical store, and those digital businesses which never required you to get out of your home—also, private hospitals.
- The government in India now in this 4.0 lockdown allowed a few more shops and businesses to open up. But the restaurants and gyms etc. are not allowed to open up until doctors and scientists can find the vaccine for the COVID-19. So how can your business survive if you own a restaurant? If you never in the past delivered food at home and never used services like Zomato and Swiggy, now is the time that you reconsider everything.
- Now when the government permits for a few businesses to open up, you can grab your chance with both hands while taking the necessary precautions, and you can start making deliveries at home. So that not only can your business survive right now in the present but also in the future.
- Are you a gym owner, cooking class teacher, school owner, and so on, and do you think that everything is going to collapse very soon? Yes, it holds a tremendous amount of truth in it. But like I said before, this can only happen when you are not adopting the change and bending yourself according to it. The solution to your problems is straightforward in this world of digital when there are lots of zoom meetings and classes are happening.
- As a gym owner, why don’t you start teaching your members on the zoom a few exercises that they can do easily at home without the gym equipment? Also, the cooking classes teacher and school teachers can start this zoom class, which most of the schools and colleges are doing right now.
- But if you are in the business of selling things like clothes and shoes and so many other things which you think the government won’t allow to open up anytime soon. Here you can use two different tricks. Either you also connect with your customers digitally and start doing deliveries, or the other thing that you can do is reach out to your customers to find out their immediate needs and begin providing the services of something that your clients need at this moment. The government won’t give you any trouble while you are doing business.
It is given that there are going to be businesses that won’t survive this whole fall down of economics, but the biggest question is, are you going to let your business become its next victim, or are you going to play wisely and survive? But who knows, this becoming a versatile strategy might take your business to new heights once all of us overcome this crisis and you become one of the biggest names in the industry because you adapted to the change.
