Early on, during the shelter in place orders that came during COVID-19, many companies realized just how important technology was to drive their business and improve overall efficiency. Many businesses needed to quickly acquire new technology in order to make remote work possible: utilizing new programs to improve communication and effectiveness, deploying new hardware to team members working from home, and overall improving accessibility to all team members through the use of technology.
Now, as businesses are moving to reopen, technology is just as important as ever. In some office settings, many employees are still working remotely. In others, customers need tech-friendly solutions that will allow them to utilize the company effectively without needing to come in to the office in person. The gradual reopening of businesses across the country does not mean that COVID-19 is over–and in order for your business to continue operating effectively, you need to continue to effectively utilize technology to reach your goals.
Many employees are eagerly awaiting the return to the office and that sense of returning to normal. As the workplace amps up, however, the demand to fill positions may quickly outstrip the available talent pool. Not only must IT employees continue to support employees in the office as they always have, they may need to provide new levels of support for employees continuing to work from home or customers who still need to utilize virtual services. Not only that, COVID-19 fast-tracked digital transformation across many industries.
Those businesses now need an enhanced IT team to support the services their customers have now come to rely on. Many of them may need to shift their operations and continue to put additional services in place to help enhance customer service or improve employees’ ability to work from wherever they are.
While the available labor may have seen a temporary increase, since unemployment rates skyrocketed throughout the pandemic, top talent will likely return quickly to their former positions or acquire new jobs in their preferred industries. In order to acquire that top talent, your business needs to act quickly and provide a competitive offer that will attract and retain those employees. Job security has become increasingly important in the post-COVID-19 era, as many employees have faced joblessness or decreased hours at work during this period of turmoil.
Business owners must also consider the ongoing tech talent shortage that has caused so many problems across many industries. Utilizing effective IT services, therefore, remains critical for businesses in every industry, as does working with an effective recruitment company that can help find the talent you need for your open positions. Partnering with a market expert like Atlantic Group, however, can give you access to a larger talent pool as well as decreasing the time needed to fill qualified openings.
Your business may have undergone a substantial digital transformation during the pandemic. As you move forward following the pandemic, much of that disruption may remain. Many businesses are already anticipating the need to continue to improve technology in order to offer their customers the highest possible degree of support as the world continues to navigate post-pandemic life.
