Prepare for the move to a home-run company model

Hosted by

Home-run companies are becoming very popular lately and there are numerous reasons for this.

Of course, there’s the coronavirus. With the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of businesses have been forced to readjust and attempt to ensure that their business model continues to make sense in the eyes of their customers and their employees.

While this has been tricky, businesses that were already operating from home thrived. They didn’t need to worry about ensuring employees maintained their distance or the steps that were needed to keep customers safe.

Details to consider when working from home

There’s also the added benefit that working from home saves you a fortune. But there are some key details that you need to consider and steps you must take to prepare for this change. Here are the important details.

If you’re moving from the office, then it’s important to think about which items and pieces of furniture you are going to need at your home. There may be more pieces that you want to take. For instance, when you work from home. It’s absolutely vital that you have a great place to work. So, you might want to move that ergonomic chair from your office to your home. You might also be interested in anything related to high levels of business productivity.

Once you have decided what you needed, you should hire movers. It’s unlikely that you will be able to pack everything that you want from the office in your personal vehicle. With the right moral team, you can take comfort in knowing that everything is being well looked after and save yourself from going back and forth. 

Don’t forget security

One of the common misconceptions about a home-run business is that it’s somehow more safe and secure than an office property. The general thinking here is that a criminal isn’t going to bother with a house but again that’s not true.

If they do break into the home they’ll probably find a laptop with very little on. However, they might decide to take the whole computer or they could simply siphon the data on it. The data that is held and related to your business is probably more valuable than anything else in the property. 

That’s why you should definitely invest in a cloud server. The right cloud server will offer complex security systems that criminals will not easily be able to break through. It will also guarantee that your data isn’t stored on a hard drive. 

Set up the right connections 

Finally, you need to make sure that you are setting up the right connections in your company. This includes ensuring that everyone such as your employees, customers and investors are all able to connect with you and potentially each other. Luckily, these days, there are countless tech options that will provide the solution you need. It’s also available for free or at costs that will fit budgets of businesses both large and small. 

We hope this helps you understand everything that you need to know about preparing for a move home with your business.
