Here is what we learned from the first wave of the COVID-19

Those who already had experience in the home office moved more quickly to the new situation, and the others had no other choice to survive. However, despite the difficulties, there are many positives due to the initially frightening changes.
Let’s look back now and summarize these before the second wave begins.
Among leaders, flexibility, quick decision-making, change management, and open, clean communication were the keys to success at a time when uncertainty and emerging dangers permeated everyday life. Optimism and sharing of good practices have become virtually natural as all companies globally have sought a path to security. This cohesion and mutual support through knowledge sharing have helped both employers and employees to embrace change. In addition, this drew our attention to the potential of the situation to an unprecedented extent. At the middle management level, problems have arisen that have not been addressed before, but the uncertain situation has prevented the management of change, ensuring a rapid and clean flow of information, speeding up decisions, problem-solving, reassuring employees and implementing effective cooperation.
The fact that everyone wore the same shoes helped them accept the changes.
But what can we keep of these after the virus?
Everyone is curious about this, regardless of position. Of course, we could easily say that we keep things that work well, but the situation is much more nuanced than this, because what works in one company is not scripture in another, or even within a small team there may be differences between employees. You don’t even have to go far for the specifics, as the issue of the home office, for example, is one of the most mentioned topics right away. To be sure, we have all the technology we need, we have adapted to it and we can save a lot of time we used to get to the office, and it can make working at home even more comfortable starting school, but the benefits of meeting in person are in favor of keeping the offices.
