How to Keep Your Business Running When America Goes Remote
Sometimes, even the boss is forced answer to the powers that be – namely, local and state policymakers, and, in particularly concerning events, the feds. When force majeure events (i.e., catastrophic storms and pandemics) occur, it could be only a matter of time before your business is forced to close up shop. When this happens, having the ability to keep your business running – even if only at half capacity – could be the difference between a year of profits and a year of problems. For many businesses, the solution to this challenge is remote work.
As remote work continues to grow in popularity, business owners are beginning to take notice of the advantages of this unique work arrangement.

However, not all businesses are ready to take the leap from the office to the couch. In this article, we discuss several telecommuting tips to help you stay in business when unexpected events derail your operations.
