The New Normal

Being a small business ourselves, we can sympathise with the challenges that businesses worldwide have faced in recent weeks. What we must remember is that we’re all in this together and will get through to the other side, hopefully stronger than ever before. Through these troublesome times, our thoughts are primarily with you and your loved ones and we hope that you stay safe and well.

We must also recognise that businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and organisations of all shapes and sizes are feeling the impact of the escalating coronavirus outbreak, unfortunately some sectors have been much more impacted than others and unable to trade completely. Others have deterred from their usual operations to remote working in line with government advice and the national effort to eliminate the spread of the virus.

The welfare of our employees and their families is our priority so we have been working from home since 16th March and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. The Tailor-Made Media team have rose to the challenge and have ensured an uninterrupted service to our clients that will help them to be as prepared as possible when normal life resumes. Remote working is not a new concept to us and we have had plenty of practice, but please be mindful that if there isn’t a process in place working from home can result in a downturn in productivity, making it all the more difficult to survive the coming months.

If you haven’t already, please take time away from fire-fighting and assess the vital steps that must be taken in order to protect your business long term in the climate that is commonly referred to as ‘the new normal’. We are here to help during this challenging time so please keep an eye on our blog and social media platforms over the coming weeks as we’ll be posting a mini-series of useful information to help you weather the storm.

In the meantime, we are proud to have temporarily changed our logo to NHS blue to show our support to the selfless heroes who are working tireless to save lives, and at a time when all we need to do is stay home.
