Recent events have proven that severe weather effects can be devastating to businesses. Economists have estimated the latest bout of severe weather could cost the economy $5 billion or more. Part of that economic blow comes from lost productivity for businesses that have to close entirely, or because employees can't get to work due to hazardous conditions. Do businesses have any options other than to wait out the storm? The short answer is "yes."


Now is the time for businesses to make sure their office is ready to face the elements. Power outages, blocked roads and school closures are just a few of the things that can have a severe negative effect on productivity and the bottom line. Having plans in place and creative work options for employees can be the difference between profit and loss during challenging weather events.

In this slideshow, Digium shares 10 tips to help ensure that businesses will be able to survive not only winter weather, but all weather-related closures or slowdowns.
