Here in Chicago, we have hit the one month mark of sheltering-in-place and many businesses are still navigating the impacts of COVID-19 and making adjustments to their operations.
One benefit of the times that we live in is the immense amount of information available to us online. As a company, as we have been navigating through these adjustments we have found a number of useful resources online. We have compiled some of these resources in hopes that they can be useful to others in finding the help they need.
Resources for businesses, organizations, and individuals facing hardships due to COVID-19.
- Where can I find emergency financial resources to help with COVID-19 hardships?
- Coronavirus (COVID-19): Small Business Guidance & Loan Resources
While unfortunately, it is not possible for all businesses for many of us transitioning to a remote working structure that has been a key adjustment. Here are a couple of articles that may help make your transition a productive one. The first resource is an HBR guide for managing a (newly) remote workforce and the second is a list of helpful tools when working remotely. One of the handy tool recommendations (especially for those with kids) is #5, Krisp, a noise-canceling tool that mutes background noise on any communication app.
