Upskill Employees to Leverage on Digital Technology
Many companies are navigating changing to digital technology and enhancing new skills for their employees even before the COVID-19 pandemic. To prepare companies for future disruptions, it is extremely crucial for employees to develop digital skills.
Since late 2019, work-from-home technologies were promptly adopted and Microsoft Teams itself gained triple the number of daily active users. This was because current COVID-19 restrictions have accelerated demand for Microsoft Teams that enable companies to provide a safe working environment for employees, so they can still work from home. All in all, this post-pandemic workplace arrangement has become the new norm in our economic development.
The Next Wave – Remote Work
Worried that you will not be able to work efficiently and productively at home during the pandemic? Fret not!
You see, technology is not about fancy and expensive high-tech solutions. You can have a head start on the digital technology journey by taking small steps to automate existing processes.
As homes steadily embrace smart technology, offices are rushing to catch up. COVID-19 accelerates this move. In fact, a recent survey reported that Singapore is the most prolific adopter of cloud computing in Southeast Asia. 7 in 10 respondents in Singapore also said the hybrid cloud approach was key to their company’s disaster recovery and business continuity efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Undeniably, remote work is here to stay — and you need to plan for this new wave of transformation.
