Will COVID-19 Bring Permanent Change to How You Work?

post Covid-19 work

Right now, it doesn’t feel like there’s any end in sight to the global health crisis or the myriad, profound changes it has wrought. The reality is, though, that the COVID-19 pandemic will eventually end and with it, many elements of the new normal it produced. Some changes are here to stay, though. From productive fixes borne of urgent desperation to quality of life measures we might otherwise have forever considered luxuries, some things will remain. 

This is particularly true for entrepreneurs, small business owners and a host of professionals maneuvering around the Covid-19 pandemic regulations. 

How the Pandemic Could Upend Traditional Thinking About Productivity

Will in-person business meetings still seem necessary in a world where they were actively avoided for health and safety reasons? How important is expensive office space if it can be downsized efficiently without impacts to productivity? Large-scale shifts aren’t the only changes that could result, either. Grocery delivery may become a way of life for families that would never have considered it before the pandemic. Reduced classroom hours for independent middle- or high-schoolers may be a permanent change for kids who are unexpectedly thriving at home. 

Professionals who would never have considered hiring a virtual assistant pre-COVID may also realize a sizeable enough return on their investment to do so in a less frantic world. Collaborative work systems devised in the middle of a crisis may prove to be meaningfully impactful when the crisis ends, too.  

Planning for an Uncertain Future

It’s not always easy to plan for a relatively predictable future, a luxury few of us have these days. Still, this is a great time to take stock of your professional life to determine what is working, what isn’t and what might be solutions to old problems as well as new. It’s not all about knowing exactly what will happen but about being prepared to adapt to our ever-changing environment.
