The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 and its rapid spread worldwide has changed the way we work perhaps permanently.
Businesses of all sizes were impacted by coronavirus pandemic, especially those that rely on physical labor. Many industries were taken by surprise, but after this first lockdown is certain that in the future organizations will be better prepared to face a similar crisis.
A crisis as big as this one, led many companies to make dramatic changes, for example: non-essential organizations unfortunately were forced to close due to low demand, while other industries had to chance their production to aid the national efforts against COVID-19 in order to survive.
Even workers training sessions are now different, most are done online or through video conferencing while others are taking place on sites following strict social distancing protocols to prevent the spread of the virus. All organizations are now forced to go under health and safety courses to be able to cope with all rules set by the government.
From now on, it is more likely that business will invest heavily in technology that will enable operations to be completed remotely and employees will definitely be trained in different types of software as part of their job to be able to work from home in case such an approach is needed.
Contracts will also change, dictating clauses that will be more specific about what will occur in case previous agreements are not completed because of extreme circumstances such as a pandemic. Ultimately, rather than just changes to contracts and additional training, as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, many office-based work will shift to a virtual environment as part of their daily operations.
The truth to be told is that the way we work, perhaps has changed forever. The only way for many industries to survive will be their ability to adapt, and maybe just, maybe, virtual methods will be the best option.
