The doors to Ontario’s economy are swinging back open, and as entrepreneurs gear up for the new frontier of in-person interaction, The Minery is using a simple tech solution to help get businesses up and running smoothly and safely.
The full-service employee and brand experience consulting company has just released news that they will be conducting a free one-time “Back to Business” Health & Safety Audit through their Imprv platform, for businesses looking to resume regular operations.
The Government of Ontario has introduced strict Health & Safety (H&S) protocols for businesses opening their spaces in hopes of minimizing the transmission of COVID-19. In an already-disrupted landscape, entrepreneurs and business leaders can greatly benefit from streamlined, guided expertise as they navigate new rules.
“We wanted to find a way to help business owners take a proactive stance as they re-open. To get off on the right foot. Our “Back to Business” digital Audit will be sure to keep you on the right track,” says Heather Macpherson, President, The Minery and member of TechAlliance’s Board of Directors.
By submitting a short online survey, business owners will receive a snapshot of their COVID-19 H&S compliance, along with recommended next steps. From there, they’ll have the opportunity to access the Imprv platform and work through the action plan online. In a world overloaded with information, it’s essential that solutions be as simple as they are accurate. That’s why The Minery’s team has tailored audits to eight different industries: Retail, Restaurant & Food Services, Automotive, Manufacturing, Office, Healthcare, Hospitality and General. According to VP, Bri Newman, they’ll adapt as needs grow.
Newman says that their company’s main focus has always been to transform the workplace, with proactivity at the forefront. “Our goal is to help companies get clear on where their accountabilities are from a process standpoint and giving them digital tools to self-assess and step in front of them,” she notes.
The Minery’s own intense focus on client experience serves as a testament to the forward-thinking they weave into their technology solutions for businesses.
“As soon as this pandemic happened, we flipped the switch from sales, to ramping up support. Our main priority became figuring out how to help our clients be proactive, and not just react to it,” Newman says. The Minery recognized that in the frenzy of an interrupted economy, businesses that have already faced immense loss can’t afford to lose more time and revenue. The last thing any entrepreneur is looking for right now, is to be inspected and found in violation of H&S guidelines.
As Southwestern Ontario opens back up for business, due diligence measures like the “Back to Business” Audit will be the first step to an effective rebuild. Newman says that complying with new H&S rules, and communicating these actions are non-negotiable. “Employers’ communication is more important now than ever. Customers need to feel safe being in your space. Employees need to feel confident that their leaders are taking the right measures. Managing fear with strong communication can make or break a business’ ability to stay afloat.”
