How Covid-19 Has Changed How We Communicate

Eldersburg, MD – June 19, 2020 – Coronavirus has changed the way we are all communicating. During these changing times, businesses are struggling to follow the strict guidelines that vary by state regarding social distancing. Before we get back to a new normal, we must figure out how to communicate in business without disrupting operations, while at the same time ensuring our employees, customers, and partners remain safe.   First Source Wireless has partnered with 3M by adding additional resources to provide businesses with new ways to keep communicating while remaining at a safe distance.

“We understand it is important to stay healthy during these times and recognize the need to improve communicating from a distance”.  Says Nick Hohman, Vice President of First Source Wireless. “Communication in businesses and between team members has changed drastically, meaning we need to find new solutions to protect not only us but everyone around us.”

Essential businesses are still operating which means oil refineries, manufacturing plants, and distribution centers are still working tirelessly within our communities. Communication is changing right in front of our eyes. Maintaining constant communication, like how we have before, is important during these challenging times because:

  • Distribution facilities and production facilities are still open and need to be able to operate business as usual.
  • The lower number of workers making communication harder between teams
  • Laws require at a safe distance which means the way we have communicated before is changing.
