IT expert creates Coronavirus checklist for working from home

3/23/2020 An Atascadero based IT expert has created an urgent checklist for business owners – to help them prepare for shutting their office during the Coronavirus emergency.

William Steffenauer, owner of The Digital Solution explores 4 different priorities business owners and managers will need to consider, as more businesses are forced to implement a work from home policy.

“This is about preparing now to keep your business operating as usual. Imagine if all of your staff had to stay at home, with no way of working,” said William.

“In some countries, it is predicted that up half of all workers could be off at work at the same time. And it could be only a matter of time before the US is in a similar situation.”

“If SLO County business owners and managers do not prepare for this eventuality right now, they could find themselves in a lot of trouble down the line.”

He added: “The preparation checklist is designed to help them think about how they can prepare for this eventuality. And how they can ensure their employees can continue working at home in isolation, as long as they are fit and healthy to do so.”
