Safety & Security Hint

As winter approaches, what’s your plan for inclement weather? What happens when a major ice storm, snow, severe flooding prevents your staff from safely getting to work? Have you thought about your CSR’s ‘stuck’ at the store during dangerous weather? You should have a plan in place, ready to implement when the need arises. You might have a nearby hotel/motel your staff could use if roads become impassable. If bad weather is imminent, you might consider closing for the short duration out of concern for your staff. Consider a bonus for staff members who cannot leave work until the next shift arrives. This should be in addition to their regular salary and/or overtime. Remember, it’s better (and cheaper) to plan for emergencies.
