Keeping Up Business Productivity During a Heat Wave

While you're trying to do business around town during one of the hottest months, there are a few things that you're going to need to do to ensure that everything operates smoothly.

Keep Everything Charged -- And Keep Your Options Open

When the city is in the throes of a heat wave, one of the major concerns is that the electricity will go out. To that end, you should always have other options open. Keep a spare laptop battery charged and, if you work on a desktop, make sure that you have a battery source connected so that you won't lose all your work when the power goes out. When going on site for client meetings make sure that you have more than enough power to complete the meeting -- even if the lights go out. Don't forget that electricity usually takes out the Internet.

Arrange for Transportation in Advance

The last thing you want to happen during a heat wave is to get stuck in traffic. Make sure that you've arranged transportation well in advance and try your best to travel outside of the major rush hour times. Los Angeles traffic is certainly nothing to scoff at, especially as the heat soars.

Consider Moving Towards Electronic Meetings

When the power is up, electronic meetings are far preferable to slogging yourself across the city. If you go this route, try to complete your phone and video conferences over 4G or 3G Internet rather than WiFi; this will ensure that your meeting continues even if your Internet service or electricity goes down.

Take solace in the fact that the heat wave likely won't last long. In the mean time, you may want to consider delaying any non-essential meetings until after the weather has balanced out; after all, few meetings go well when everyone is exhausted and hot.
