As we all know, Covid-19 has spread across continents and became the epidemic that we fear. But that does not mean the world should stop turning and everything needs to come to a standstill. Instead, this is the time to be more proactive than ever and find ways on how we can be as productive as we were before these trying times.
The economic impact is real, and we are already beginning to feel the strain. Organizations in South East Asia and now all around the world are taking many precautions to combat the coronavirus by implementing systems like remote working and relay teams (taking turns coming into the office to minimize interaction).
The best way to counter Covid-19 is to most importantly, be positive and remain productive. Here are some articles to guide us to be the best professionals we can be despite the ongoing complications we are facing currently in the business world.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu
Currently, Covid-19 is the enemy that is causing a ripple through the industry. Thus, if we gain more knowledge and understand how it spreads and what we can do to prevent it from affecting us, businesses can still run smoothly and fight through any challenges we face.
The professional world has taken a step forward despite these hard times in countering the current pandemic. Let’s see what these big and successful organizations are doing to carry on striving and take a hint or two on how we can implement it in our own businesses and companies.
During these hard times, the morale in the workplace might be running low. From worrying about one’s wellbeing to economical slumps that endangers their position in the company, panic is the most common reaction. And when employees panic, their management panics as well. Fret not, this doesn’t have to be the case. Find out more about how to keep up the morale of employees in this article.
Working from home might sound ironic but I assure you, it’s not. Unsurprisingly, many might think working from home might be more counter-productive than beneficial as opposed to waking up early and coming into the workplace. There are ways we can implement on our new daily routine if remote working comes into play. Have a look at this video and discover how remote working works and how it can be fruitful during the coronavirus period.
