How to prepare your business for the summer holidays

It’s that time of year once again, when the kids are out of school and on some days you wouldn’t be surprised to see some tumbleweed slowly making it’s way across the mostly empty office…

But business must go on as normal. The summer holidays can be a trying time for companies, particularly small to medium sized enterprises that depend upon a small workforce. It’s a time when numerous employees want to use their annual leave, yet the usual day to day tasks have to be taken care of. According to the Office for National Statistics, over 17.8 million Brits enjoyed summer holidays abroad last year, and the number is set to increase further this year.

The best way to deal with the summer holiday rush is to be fully prepared. Unified Communications can help your company ease into the summer holiday period...
