The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally transformed our world in ways that will continue to reverberate for years to come, affecting everything from the way we work and socialise to the way we view public health and global interdependence.

According to a survey by Gartner, 82% of company leaders plan to allow employees to work remotely at least some of the time, making remote work the new norm. Supply chain disruptions have had a moderate to major financial impact on 71% of companies, according to a survey by Deloitte. This in turn has raised questions about similar global events and caused the future to appear quite uncertain, irrespective of which industry you are from. For instance, 3M, the manufacturing giant behind Post-It Notes and Scotch Tape, has announced a major restructuring plan that includes laying off 6,000 staff worldwide, in addition to the 2,500 manufacturing roles cut in January.

Regardless, the show must go on, but now is a good time to think about how we can be better prepared for the future.
Indeed, a well-managed business can not only survive during uncertain times but may even thrive.

Another challenge that businesses face right now is the increasing shift towards remote and flexible working.

At Pop & Co, our seasoned experts provide bespoke direction on how to adapt to internal changes, manage risks and take on any form of process and digital transition seamlessly.

According to a study by Gallup, companies with high levels of employee engagement have 23% higher profitability. Our experts can help companies develop policies to promote employee engagement in a remote work environment, such as regular check-ins, virtual team-building activities, and recognition programs. We optimise resources with global talent to unlock your business’s potential, increase capacity, maximise value, and drive future growth.

Building a loyal team in this business climate is challenging, but having dedicated staff who are satisfied with their work is crucial for success; therefore, elevating their lifestyles with a four-day work week while using our competitive advantage to handle missing capacity should be considered.

According to a survey conducted by Hubstaff, the time tracking software provider, 27% of remote workers reported being more productive than their office-based counterparts. Having said that, to fully utilise productivity and creativity via remote working systems, careful planning and management is required to overcome potential distractions and ensure clear communication with team members. The transition to a meticulously designed remote working system can be overwhelming for growing business and this is where we come in as your growth partner.
