Is your business ready for the “New Normal”?
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruption to companies throughout the world and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Many companies have shut down, while others have been able to provide work from home options for some, if not all, of their employees and have continued to operate in a fashion.
If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to start thinking about your business model post COVID-19. Restarting your business is not a simple action such as turning the power on and expecting everything to work as it previously was.
Staff have been severely impacted by the changes due to COVID-19, both personally and professionally. They will be feeling uncertainty and anxiety as they move back into their roles.
Business processes will have changed as a result of COVID-19. It may have come to light that some processes are now redundant or need to be reviewed and optimised.
With the introduction of technologies to allow work from home practices, and success in this mode of operation, there may be a push for work practices that support better work/life balance.
Whatever your strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic to date, you will need to have new strategies to move forward, addressing the needs of your business, your employees and your customers.
We can work together to capitalise on the opportunities while minimising risks. Well thought out strategies, business models, processes and changes will help you not only cope, but excel in the new business environment.
