Guide to Restarting Operations
Letter from our CEO, Elias Bustos
Below you will find areas that our team have identified as potential problem areas as Goodwill DGR operations begin to ramp up.
Recommendations for Operations
With operations shuttered for such an extended period of time, it will take some effort to get operations back up and running with some semblance of what it was before. There are several areas that we see may present significant difficulties.
Recommendations for New Team Members
With so many team members displaced by the current events, a Goodwill may find that not all of them will be able/willing to return. This presents several issues that need to be addressed and is the biggest area of concern for our team.
Recommendations for Network Infrastructure and Hardware
Most hardware has been lying dormant for several weeks. Usually, this is not an issue for the hardware itself. However, Windows updates and other updates may bring a machine to a crawl if it has not been patched for an extended period of time. Also, if there has been no network traffic for that period of time, it is difficult to know if a router or switch or modem has gone bad during the dormant period of time. Here are the areas of concern our team sees.
