Business Success Post COVID19 – No matter your industry or location, there is no escaping the impact the COVID19 pandemic has had on our lives, both personally and professionally. Global events like a pandemic don’t simply produce short-lived changes; they lead to profound shifts in how we live and work. As we prepare to enter a post COVID19 world, many professionals are feeling some uncertainty on how to move their businesses forward in a vastly different world. To help you and your team succeed, we’ve outlined a few areas of focus to think about as you navigate your workplace’s next normal.

Business Success Post COVID19 and Add Value Through New Technology
Although it seems like life came to a standstill at the outset of the pandemic, technology was advancing rapidly as we learned to work and communicate in new ways. At DICE Corporation, we launched our “New DICE” platform with innovative solutions such as Matrix Interactive during the pandemic. “By offering a hybrid approach to video monitoring and event management that is powered by advanced tech like AI. DICE can bring our customers and their employee’s powerful solutions and new ways to work, whether they’re in the office or working remotely,” said DICE Corporation Co-President Avi Lupo. To stay competitive in a post COVID19 world, start thinking outside the box for new technologies that will add value and convenience in an uncertain world.
Look for Fast Growth Opportunities
Before the pandemic, industries such as healthcare and technology were some of the fastest-growing in the United States and worldwide. But as behavior and spending habits continue to change, many businesses have to adapt to meet new demands quickly. As you identify new opportunities, there are many things you can do to accelerate growth, such as utilizing a new sales or service management system, forming strategic partnerships, and reassessing your customer and competitor demographics.
Expand Your Skillset and Business Success Post COVID19
Did you know one-third of employees do nothing to upgrade or improve their current skillsets? As your business grows, so should your knowledge base. Now is a great time to take advantage of professional development opportunities in your industry or field. Many classes and workshops are available online for free or a small fee and do not require significant time commitments. Plus, they can lead to new networking opportunities and boost your confidence and credibility. If you’re not sure where to start, contact a professional organization affiliated with your industry. They often host training and career development events or can help you locate one that will meet your needs.
Prepare for Remote Work
One of the most significant professional changes many of us have experienced due to COVID19 restrictions is remote working. At one point, at least 66% of employees reported they were working remotely at least part-time last year. An estimated one in four Americans (26%) say they will continue to work remotely through the end of the year, and some will probably continue to do so indefinitely. Whether it’s your clients or members of your own team, there are many things you can do to engage digitally and actually stay more involved than you would be meeting in person. Schedule regular coffee chats with people using video calls and talk about what you usually would, including sports, vacation plans, and other water-cooler material. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different audio and chat tools to find what works best for you. And take time to build a remote organizational culture and practices.
We’ve all learned a lot in the last year, and there is still much more room for growth as we slowly transition into a post COVID19 world. Keep these tips in mind and put your team on the right track to make the transition as seamless as possible. The New DICE Corporation offers many resources to assist various industries, including security, call centers, healthcare, and retail loss prevention.
