Preparing for work after COVID-19.
The UK Government eased lockdown measures on the 4th of July 2020, but the impacts of the virus mean that enterprises have to rethink the way they do business and chances are that some of these efforts will be around for a while.
The virus has sped up the evolution of work and everything from meetings to collaborations have been done remotely.
In the grand scheme of things, the coronavirus may just accelerate changes in work already in play, such as remote working should the productivity of the workforce not decrease. Simply put, the virus scare mat just show us a better way to work.
In the years to come, remote working will be more and more common, and perhaps more importantly, the remote working culture is arguably now already in place to support greater flexibility in terms of both location and even work schedules.
“Technology has evolved to the point that virtual communication can substitute for face-to-face interactions. From telehealth to business meetings, more human interactions will take place on a screen in the future” – Forbes, 2020
There is clear evidence that working from home can have major advantages in the right applications and with the right workers, as well as positive impacts on the environment.
Setting up your business to allow for remote working requires skill and knowledge as security measures and private information access need to be set up so that only a few employees have access to certain information and much more.
