Will Remote Work Become The New Normal?
With remote working platforms seeing a huge spike in demand (and less productive tools reducing bandwidth as well), this period will serve as a reckoning for remote work in general, and may help to spur on digital transformation out of sheer necessity.
*The forced lock-downs in The US and Europe quickly vetted technologies and procedures while bandwidth consumption skyrocketed.
*Identifying gaps occurring in current knowledge and capabilities of a firm will allow for massive improvement in supporting remote workers.
*Future enhancements to employers technology spend and remote work procedures will drive increasing decentralization of workforce.
*Mutations of COVID-19 could impact the next seasonal flu and its impact could be just as severe. Preparations for work from home are an important part of Business Continuity Planning.
