Don’t let the eclipse overshadow your business!

Don’t let the eclipse overshadow your business! Make sure your day is aligned correctly.

The total solar eclipse will be Monday, August 21, at 1:28 p.m.  The process actually starts about an hour and a half before that and completely ends and hour and a half after.  It WILL affect your business in some way.  For example:

  • Parents will be affected by no school.
  • Nashville is predicting gridlock traffic.
  • Employees don’t want to miss a “once in a lifetime” event.

Tips for productivity and inclusion:

  • Change shift times if you have people that start between 1 and 2 on a normal day.
  • Plan a 30 minute lunch break during the eclipse so everyone can attend if they chose.
  • Be flexible with your work force.  If they can work from home, encourage it!
  • Plan an event around it!  Company picnic?  How about an Eclipse Party?! 

If you allow your people to experience the eclipse at work:

  • Be safe!  Educate them to not look directly at it
  • Remind them to bring their “special glasses” if they choose

PLAN NOW, for a successful day that you and your employees will never forget!
