Post COVID-19: Rise of the Back Office

Posted by Kevin Bell on Sep 16, 2020 2:06:06 PM

As we return to the workplace and attempt to emerge from beneath the shadow of COVID-19 we will see that, for most organisations around the world, the pandemic has laid waste to the P&L and Balance Sheet to the extent that they now both exhibit significantly more red than black.

Post COVID-19: Reinventing Work and the WFH phenomenon

So, just like the Luddites[1] of the 19th century, we must now re-consider our options lest we continue sleepwalking towards our own demise accelerated by the onset of the pandemic.
