COVID-19 is a humanitarian and societal crisis of unprecedented speed and scale. It has both immediate and long-lasting implications for how people work and participate in society. The top priority is to protect the health and safety of people, including in their workplaces. Leaders must make rapid, highly-informed decisions, and take immediate actions to protect and support their people and ensure that critical business operations continue in order to help societal continuity.
Reopening the economy after a deadly, global pandemic isn’t as simple as flipping a switch and returning to normal. Not only must employers consider the health and safety concerns of employees, but they must also think about the clients or customers who purchase their goods and services. If people don’t feel comfortable stepping into a customer-facing store like a restaurant, hotel or store, then these businesses will struggle to get enough business even as protections are transitioned away.
Mobile applications have always penetrated easily the personal spectrum of our daily life. As communities the world over face the lockdown crisis, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, more things have gone online than ever before. Undoubtedly the handy smartphone has become an indispensable device for most people in the lockdown or quarantine zones. The telecommunication network has given a helping hand to get everybody connected.
Technology is impacting development and organizational growth in ways we’ve never seen before. To run a business, you must be innovative, that is you must be thinking not only profitability but responsibility and sustainability as well. You’ll need a strong business growth plan addressing how to increase profits and how to reduce operating costs by embracing technology.
Just weeks after winding down their operations, companies are being asked to restart their engines at an unprecedented rate as lockdown rules are gradually relaxed. The challenge is complicated by uncertainties about the progression of COVID-19 and the social, political and fiscal actions that it will drive.
