As vaccination programs in our nation begin to take place while we are in the midst to cautiously step out of lockdown, what can those who are returning to the workplace expect to get accustomed to? We explore what might change at the office after lockdown ends and what are some adaptive measures we’ve seen organizations have embraced throughout the course of the pandemic –
The journey of digitalization has certainly sped up from the pandemic as many businesses start to realize the importance of technology after going through all the lockdown. That’s why there are many businesses starting to change from a traditional office to an office where they implement technology innovation for better work efficiency. By adapting to the changes, businesses start to invest more in proper technology by having better video conferencing software such as Zoom, Google Meet, and other software to stay connected with their employees while they also shift their business into the cloud for better access to data.
Lockdown has caused many employees to stuck at home to work and unable to have a proper interaction with other colleagues or friends. Hence, the need for social interactions has necessitated the movement from traditional to collaborative spaces as there are 75% of people who work from home crave in-person team activities. Many businesses are now in need of collaborative spaces as the space can act as a smaller office footprint and give individuals the chance to meet and work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and industries.
Over the past year, social media has become a lifeline to customers when a 45% reduction in customer demand was notably recorded because of COVID-19, whereas the customer demand is also shifting more towards eCommerce and they are now more involved in social media for the buy and sell process. Not only does social media keep the dialogue going in real-time but also create more opportunities for businesses to make customers feel understood and valued, increase retention and for some – create an additional revenue stream.
Businesses have always been in a tight financial spot since the beginning of the pandemic and found that they were wasting their resources in uncontrollable circumstances such as delayed receivables, pending payables, and rent on unused premises. As a result, large corporations are reverting to a workspace with flexible leases to avoid negatively impacting their balance sheet while they can focus their finances on other necessities area.
