2020 has changed everything
The pandemic has launched many businesses five to ten years into the digital future.
Virtually overnight, remote working and automated operations have become realities with some of these changes set to stay. Companies are making decisions to now set up homeworking as a “default option” with major organisations like Twitter leading the charge.
This means finding new methods of people management and more focus on organisational design than ever before.
Leadership and culture will be especially important in a post-COVID-19 world given the dramatic increase in digital and virtual work environments and the human resource challenges facing every business.
No doubt there will also be changes in interpretation of employment law as this ‘new normal’ unfolds.
