Businesses from all sectors have faced many challenges from having to deal with changes in working practices over recent months. The results from an Upwork.com survey recently published in The Wall Street Journal highlight issues that many if not all business have faced.
The majority if not all the issues listed in terms of what have worked poorly can be associated to two key things
1) a lack of business continuity planning and:
2) poor leadership.
It is interesting, and some might say not surprising, that productivity was seen to have improved by more respondents than not. Businesses need to realise that they now find themselves in a new world that demands that they continue their journey to a new working mindset that reflects the ever changing needs of their clients and employees. Businesses simply cannot go back to any state of ‘normal’ if they want to have a tomorrow.
