Since March 2020, we are living, in Europe, unprecedented times of uncertainty. COVID-19 invited itself to our lives, homes, and offices without really specifying an end-date. It is unclear today how much time this pandemic will last. It is also unclear whether a vaccine will be available any time soon. The timeframe and strategies to relax confinement measures are both vague and ever changing. What is clear, however, is that this pandemic will leave a long-lasting impact on the economy and businesses. COVID-19 put us, against our will, in front of a new paradigm and a new reality. This is not a single event, but a transformation that will take place over time.
The return to “normal” will not be as “normal” as that, but rather the beginning of a new era. An era marked by new ways of working, interacting, and measuring. COVID-19 drove organisations to quickly adapt by rapidly implementing new working tools to ensure the continuity of their activities. Their employees had to quickly adapt as well, as hard as it might have been for them. Businesses are impacted in their structure itself, both internally and externally: governance, performance measurement (KPIs), management, client relationship, processes, etc. All aspects are touched directly or indirectly.
Soft skills of employees have never been so much appreciated and qualities such as flexibility and adaptability, which have long been overused, are from now on, taking on their full meaning. The digital transformation of our organisations has become a necessity. We must all take this path, however long and challenging it may be, the sustainability of our businesses depends on it.
Now the question is: How can we prepare companies to anchor these practices in time? and how can we support our “troops” to rise to this new challenge?
We are pleased to share this paper offering innovative solutions to launch your digital transformation starting with Digital Workplace.
These topics will also be discussed during a webinar, next thursday, April 30th, so stay tuned!
