- Can't wait to get back to the office? Don't expect things to be the same. The COVID-19 crisis has a number of suburban companies re-examining the feasibility of employees working remotely, and employee safety will mean a number of changes in workplace culture and office design.

- An Elgin-based office design firm expects the open office trends to be heavily modified, with safety shields and more space between workers playing bigger roles.

- We look at trends in economic development, and how now is when education, government and businesses need to work together to assure a return to economic normalcy following the COVID-19 crisis

Editor: Let us know how you're helping the COVID-19 efforts

If your suburban Chicago business is retooling to help those on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle, we want to hear from you!

Suburban businesses are stepping up and adpating to help combat the COVID-19 outbreak. If you're one of them, we want to hear from you.

As the Business Resource for Suburban Chicago, we fully understand the parallel between the success of small businesses and the success of the local economy.

That is why, during this time when COVID-19 is literally shutting down the daily routine, it is essential that we, as a business community, support the local businesses that are being affected the hardest by restrictions and closures. As business owners and leaders, we have an obligation to help one another to get through the tough times. There are several ways you can help.

- Patronize and promote local businesses that are trying to adapt to stay open - especially those in the hospitality industry. Starbucks and McDonald's will survive this ... it's up to us to make sure the local diners and coffee shops can stay afloat. And, when you do order a delivery or pick-up...be sure to tip and tip well.

- Network with one another. Find out if there are ways you can help struggling businesses through your channels, whether it be financial support or employment alternatives for employees let go during the slowdown.

- Evangelize local businesses to your friends and neighbors. Make them aware there are places they can find what they need besides Costco.

Feel free to add more ideas in comments. Together, we will get through this!
