Business Unusual – Maintaining relevance in the new normal
Date: 20 November 2020: 10am – 11:30am
Content Focus Area: Futureshock: How has the workplace changed in unforeseen ways?
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, everything changed … overnight. Organizations were forced into not only providing consumers digital alternatives, but employees as well – Everything that could move online, did move online. For those organizations that were not prepared, new business opportunities were lost, client satisfaction suffered and employees were inefficient. Rather than simply adjusting to a new world order, many organizations have found ways to move beyond what was thought possible in the past.
However, that future has arrived sooner than anticipated as many countries, companies and workers shifted to remote working in order to contain the transmission of COVID-19, dramatically changing how we work. Remote virtual meetings are now commonplace and economic activity has increased on a range of digital platforms. As the restrictions are lifted, a question that is on everybody’s mind is whether this ‘business as unusual’ will become the ‘new normal’.
