Kevin Slimp: Preparing Your Staff for the Possibility of Working at Home Amidst COVID-19
March 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT$19
All businesses have to make plans to deal with emergencies. Newspapers are no different. Whether your paper serves an area already dealing with school closings, quarantines, and other disruptions associated with COVID-19 or not, it’s imperative to have a plan in place to get the paper out in case you or your staff can’t get to the office. Whether due to a quarantine – or because someone has to be home watching the kids who are out of school – it’s of critical importance to make plans now.
In the first of two webinars meant to assist newspapers in dealing with COVID-19 (the second is led by Ryan Dohrn later in the day) Kevin Slimp will discuss how to get your staff prepared to get your paper out from home. Just a few of the topics he will discuss include:
Making sure everyone has the hardware necessary to get the paper out
Making sure everyone has the software necessary to get the paper out
Making sure everyone can access files, whether online, through storage devices, or other methods
Making sure settings are correct in all applications so print quality doesn’t suffer
Developing a plan so everyone knows what to do if a quarantine is announced
Keeping your community informed, even if your printer shuts down
