Banks worldwide have had to readjust to at least one aspect of this ‘new ‘normal’. Entire populations have been forced to work from home, proving remote infrastructure viable on a massive scale. If you are tired of all the talk around the ‘New Normal’ and that life and work will never be the same, you are not alone.
Businesses of all sizes, due to lack of readiness, ask the same questions: “How to reset post-Covid?”
The new situation presents lots of opportunities but unfortunately also many complications. The fact is, most institutions are not well set up to profit from the positive potential, nor deal with the negative fall-out in the new reality.
For some, it’s a huge reset as their whole business model suddenly becomes less attractive. For others, it’s a reset of digital transformation, budgets, way of working and mainly people practices. Where does the banking sector fall in all of this. As HR is busy today ‘re-inventing’ itself, the business needs to move fast and minimize the landing period post-Covid.
We want to offer some best practices and guidelines to help you and your businesses get ready for the ‘Big Reset’ as simple as possible. We hope that you’ll enjoy gaining insights into the new world of work & are able to apply the knowledge that you will learn to build an HR readiness plan.
