The COVID-19 virus is in the process of changing our world. The changes regarding how and where we work will be dramatic and permanent.
The rush to build online businesses?
This situation we now face has begun to reorder our society. Societal restructuring will be faster and more dramatic than we think or even imagine.
Millions of people around the world are basically in lockdown. Forcing us toward greater use of technology. E-Learning technology for teaching and study. Teleconferencing for conversing online. And the rapid move towards online purchases.
Instead of wondering if we should do something online, our new assumption will be to embrace “online-first” – asking “Is there a good reason to do this in person?”
The healthcare industry will be forced to adopt telemedicine. Schools and universities will be forced to adopt full online e-learning technology. Gyms and fitness centres we are forced to launch remote fitness classes.
Will these changes remain after this crisis?
Once everyone has been effectively working from home during this crisis, attitudes will change. Workers will reject the expense of hourly commutes to and from work. The genie will be out of the bottle – and will be near impossible to go back.
Woking remotely will be what we can expect in the near future.
