EX keeps employees engaged in their day-to-day work and satisfied with their current positions.

Improving employee experience is a widely-accepted aspect of business. It’s a great practice, yet an astonishingly low number of organizations actively put work into their EX programs.

The latter applies to my business, Timesheets.com, and how I’m able to manage my 20 office-less workers and several thousand customers from my phone.

Empty piggy bank

Throughout the past few weeks the coronavirus has left the world empty and desolate. With lockdown measures and social distancing orders in place, people refrain from going to restaurants, communicating in-person, and going to work. As the nation adjusts to this austere new lifestyle, consumerism has slowed down immensely. Consumers are only buying the essentials, which means they aren’t spending like they used to. Of course, when people aren’t spending money, businesses don’t make money. Therefore, many business owners have had to make tough decisions to stay afloat.
