COVID is trending nowadays and every organization is preparing for such a challenge. A lot has been changed and more are expected as well. The way employees were working, the benefits to the employee, travel plans, tools, and products we were using, and a lot more have been changed.
#1 Work from home will get more boost
During this pandemic, companies have allowed their employees to work from home and this has been successful. And so, now the organizations will realize by allowing employees to work from home a lot of costs can be optimized. As per the report by JotForm, 80% of employees are willing to work from home. Out of this 35% of employees are willing to take a full-time remote job. And so, this is a good indication of what employees are willing. And this has been stipulated that by allowing WFH, companies can save a lot.
#2 Marketing plan will change
The marketing plan will also change. The technology product companies are now focusing the local marketing a lot. And in such a case, influencer marketing is getting a lot of trends nowadays. And companies have received some fruitful results from such local marketing.
#3 Technology products have made a great shift
You must have used Zoom during these pandemic times and you may also have heard of multiple such online video meeting software. This clearly indicates how things have been changed during these times. As the teams are working remotely so online collaboration tools are in huge demand. Software like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Google Drive, and more have seen huge growth during these days.
#4 Need for digitization
As said earlier, most of the things are going remotely and people are now willing to get whatever possible on the internet. The industry has seen a tremendous need for digital transformation. The working methodologies like Agile, data-enabled services, etc. are gaining momentum. And these are making a real impact on the business. So, the technology sector especially the IT sector is seeing a huge demand for digital transformation.
