Around the world, countries are still in lockdown. In the UK, the process of reducing restrictions is starting. However, this cannot be regarded as a return to normal. Businesses need to think of the changing situation as moving forward into a new normal. Handling this, with the continuing reality of Covid-19, will require resilience and adaptability from business owners.

When Covid-19 struck there were many things for businesses to think about. For the last few weeks, most have been fire-fighting: making provision for team members working from home; analyzing the various forms of government help and evaluating how best it can be applied in our particular businesses; projecting the immediate and the longer-term financial impacts. Simultaneously, we’ve had to make changes at home: deciding how best to look out for vulnerable relatives and friends; learning what two meters look like; unexpectedly having to take on educating our children and entertaining them — all day long.

The world is different. But not unrecognizably so. The future we thought we were heading for is different too. But it is more likely to be one with fully stocked pasta shelves than Hunger Games. So, when we get back to normal or become accustomed to a close-as-we-can-get-to-normal interim period, you and your business need to be fit-for-purpose. And you will need to make sure your customers know it.

In business, we have to keep managing in the face of the threat posed by Covid-19. As lockdown continues, many of us, both business owners and employees, are feeling much more anxious than usual. It’s easy for this to become a downward cycle of worry, lethargy, and depression. The threat is real, and we can’t make it go away. What we can do is boost our resilience, finding ways to keep our spirits up.

Two principles are particularly useful. First, managing anxiety takes mental strength and energy, if we don’t actively recharge, we will become depleted. Secondly, the state of our morale affects the state of our immune system (At this point I have to say this doesn’t mean that anyone who becomes ill wasn’t positive enough!). So, if we pro-actively attend to our morale, we are also pro-actively attending to our health.

8 Tips for Keeping Up Morale

What was our first reaction to the news of the Covid-19 pandemic?

A wave of disbelief, that disrupted our normal working patterns significantly and maybe irretrievably.

This, unwanted shunt of nature has caused heartbreak and isolation to many. The energy we all feel right now is sadness, anxiety, despair, uncertainty, and lack of control. Lockdown with our families does not replace the energy of our work teams and our colleagues and we can feel as if we have been caged.

So how do we find some uplift or precious sustenance, for our new journey ahead?

These are, indeed, unprecedented times! It’s important, therefore, to know where you stand contractually and what legal implications there may be if you cannot provide services to others or they cannot provide services to you that are contractually bound to be fulfilled. As with all contracts, they have to be legally enforceable agreements.

Well before the UK Government advised businesses to work remotely where possible, we took the decision to make the move. We switched to remote working on 10th March. We called a meeting that morning and had transitioned to remote working by the time everyone left that evening. We haven’t been back to the office since that day.

It’s now over a month since we moved from actual office to virtual office. You won’t be surprised to hear that we’ve learned a lot in this time. Here are some tips to help you and your team work remotely, based on our experience to date:

As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads, it is important for companies of all sizes to make a contribution to help contain and fight the virus. We are seeing many companies coming forward and taking action. One way to help is by providing something that we all need in the current circumstances, for example, access to hand sanitizer.

This is where we realized that at ChargedUp, Europe’s largest phone charging network, we can make our contribution.

We are switching our network of charging stations to hand sanitizer stations. We have named this initiative CleanedUp and aim to give our support to the UK’s efforts to combat COVID-19.

Employees in the UK take over 13 million sick days per year as a result of work-related stress, depression, and other mental health issues. Another important statistic is that stress costs the British economy almost £4 billion a year.

Looking after employee wellbeing is clearly of great importance yet REBA (Reward & Employment Benefits Association) reports that only 8% of boards of directors actively drive their company’s wellbeing policy.
