With travel restrictions and social distancing measures in place across the globe inhibiting face to face interaction, businesses are facing unprecedented challenges in the way they work. In response, we’ve seen organisations and their employees embrace remote working and a range of digital solutions to ensure business continuity – and find better prospects, too.
The show must go on
Online tools and technologies have evolved significantly since their emergence more than two decades ago. Social networks, used by billions worldwide, have for years been offering greetings ranging from poking to hand waving – smartly sidestepping the question of how to greet a colleague when the handshake is on pause.
Following suit, businesses worldwide are increasingly advertising and selling their wares online. In a piece on coronavirus implications for business, McKinsey explains how consumer demand in China, where the virus originated, has not disappeared entirely. Instead there has been a “dramatic” shift toward online shopping for all types of goods, a shift that countries across the globe are now seeing.
Why is digital such an increasingly powerful opportunity?
Digital solutions: less disruption, more opportunity
In the same way telemedicine has been on the rise to help connect clinicians and patients during the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare businesses are embracing digital solutions to meet their business objectives. This is why Omnia Health Live is bringing together the ‘always-on’ aspect of the digital world with the networking and connection-making opportunities that make physical events so successful.
