The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a huge impact on the way we work. As governments worldwide urge people to stay at home to curb the spread of the virus, working from home has become the new normal across many industries. With the crisis ongoing and no end in sight, it remains unclear how long workers will have to wait before they can physically return to their workplaces.
What is clear at this stage is that leaders will have to seriously consider not just how businesses can recover, but the possibility of a completely changed workplace landscape post-COVID. This means that, starting now, they should plan and prepare for this reality. This includes exploring alternative strategies to managing their workforce and hiring new employees.
