Almost since the day the state began shutting down businesses and encouraging as many people as possible to work from home, companies and their employees have been chomping at the bit to get back to business as usual.
But reality is a little bit more complicated than having people simply pick up where they left off back in March. There are a whole host of new safety concerns including new office cleaning procedures and protocol for maintaining social distance among employees; legal and financial considerations for companies who had to borrow money or institute furloughs or layoffs; and even the not-so-simple matter of how to go about marketing your business in the current environment.
The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce hopes to help companies navigate the intricacies of reopening with a free virtual session titled “Re-Opening: Best Practices for Getting Back to Business” on Friday, June 19, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. For more information or to register visit www.princetonmercerchamber.org.
The session will be moderated by former Chamber chairman John Goedecke of U.S. Bank and will include comments from David Dafilou of Capital Health, Adam Siegelheim of Stark & Stark, and Sharon Marnien of Sparta Systems.
Dafilou has been with Capital Health since 2014 and is the chief administrative officer for its clinically integrated network (CIN), which is a partnership between physicians and the health network focused on the quality and efficiency of care.

He holds a bachelor’s in commerce and engineering and a master’s in finance, both from Drexel University.

He represents companies and nonprofits on issues including real estate, financing, insurance, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, and more.
