Remember: You don’t need to shake someone’s hand to hire them, and you don’t need to be sitting next to your colleagues to get your job done. Develop a business continuity plan with an agile approach, test all systems and tools regularly, and overcommunicate with your leaders, employees, and job candidates throughout the entire year, not just in challenging times that we are presented with today.
