The pandemic has created a new thought process to reconcile when it comes to how we physically operate as a business. I immediately recognized that the fear of unleashing employees faded, if only out of necessity. Optimism grew, and ultimately everything new started to just seem normal. Now, it’s hard to even picture the days of our old office-bound lives.
Approximately six months into a forced remote office experiment, here are a few of the things I’ve learned.
My employees don’t need an office to be productive.
While I’ve been able to run a brand completely remotely, widespread adoption of a complete work-at-home workforce hasn’t been as rapid as industry leaders may have hoped.
The novel coronavirus kicked into overdrive the move to a fully or mostly remote staff. Managers may have noticed a slight downturn in productivity as employees adjusted, but everyone needs a second to acclimate. The shift from an office to your dining room table — complete with kids running amok, Amazon deliveries and breaks to take the dog outside — comes with a side of chaos.
The truth is that if you hire the right people and train the right people, then your employees will likely be productive wherever they sit. Mine are all over the world, and there is no lack of productivity or engagement with the work.
I think we’ll see that over the longer term, productivity will prove to be a benefit of a work-at-home environment. In our current experiment, I realize that we really don’t have a choice but to let workers figure it out at home. And they have been. In a survey of more than
MADISON, Wis. — The COVID-19 testing site at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison temporarily closed Tuesday afternoon.
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office tweeted about the closure around 1 p.m. citing a computer issue.
About an hour later, the agency sent another tweet saying the computer system was up and running again, but slowly.
Testing resumed with the computer system back up, but long lines were reported.
Dane County deputies are allowing people to park and wait if they choose, the post said.

The way your website looks and functions has a huge impact on user experience and how your brand is perceived. If your website looks like you’re sending visitors back to the ‘90s, it can potentially impact future business. (You hate to see ’em, but they’re still out there.)
Redesigning a website is a great way to refresh branding, features, functionality, and more.
Sure, you might touch up your content here and there to better align with your mission statement, but a full redesign is probably necessary every few years (if you’re not making incremental changes and updates along the way).
This is exciting! You finally committed to revamping your site, but now you realize you’re missing a major piece of the puzzle – an in-house designer and developer. Or perhaps the designers you do have just don’t have the time or can’t quite do what you want.
It’s time to call up an outsourced web designer.
What Is Website Design and Development?
Web design refers to the process of creating the visual aspects of a website, such as the layout, colors, graphics, and text font.
It also includes the design aspects that provide the users with an excellent experience, which means a web designer should make sure the site is navigable and aesthetically pleasing.
Web development refers to building the backend of a site. This includes all of the coding and maintenance of a site that contributes to the performance of the website to ensure a great user experience. Web developers make sure a website is fast and responsive.
Both website design and development require experienced professionals to carry out web creation tasks successfully.
