The COVID-19 pandemic in absence of any vaccine forced the whole world into lockdown making people stay indoors. This situation led to multiple challenges in the way people normally interact and do business like commuting long distances to physically interact in face to face meetings.
During this lockdown period, administrators all over the world realized that on an average, the most efficient people in the world work 5-6 hours & that the time dedicated for ‘work from home’ results with higher efficiency, also the above challenge of face to face meeting is negated by present day communication, technology & high speed internet.
This situation also led to multiple learnings such as increased efficiency, saving of energy and travel time, saving revenue spent on office space, electricity and time wasted in establishment cafeteria, work-life balance is maintained which leads to motivated and radiant employees which in turn leads to increased efficiency.
Many company executives are toying with the idea of asking some percentage of workforce to work from home, which will lead to high productivity and reduced turn-around time as these are sustainable and are easy to implement.
History has always proved that in difficult times humans emerge with better levels of competence, the same is true with the current scenario.
In a nutshell, we can use these learnings & use them as better opportunities in post lockdown period.
