Talking Points / What Mark Freedman can say in an interview
on Examining Your Costs for a Changing Work Environment:

  1. Have you surveyed your workforce to determine if they want to return to the office or work remotely?

      • How many of your FTEs will split between a work from home and in office solution?
      • Have you examined all solutions and the costs as well as the additional risks of working remotely
      • Do you have the protocols in place to protect the business from a potential security breach?
  1. Do you need all of the leased real estate you have for your current footprint based on the old normal for this “New Normal”?
      • Have you had a conversation with your landlord about the potential restructuring of your lease?
      • Landlords are willing to restructure leases by extending the lease term and delaying the current rent collection by adding it to the end of the lease
  2. Have you had a conversation with your insurance providers for property casualty and cyber coverages to confirm that the remote workforce does not cause a claim denial should you have a loss.
  3. Does your business interruption insurance cover pandemics or has that been carved out from being an accepted claim?
  4. Have you reviewed your telecommunication needs for a  remote workforce?
      • Employees could use a solution like MS Teams so the office phone rings on their mobile.
      • Does the employee have a newer phone that will accept a physical Sim and an eSim so that both lines could ring on their wireless device without a solution provider involved? 
      • Are you giving your employee a stipend to cover the cost of a faster internet solution?
