The digital world has never been more important than it is now – supporting our lives during this global pandemic. Our work and homes lives are reliant on the goods, services and entertainment that we can access online and with this increase in digital usage comes an increase in users’ expectation of great service and what a good experience feels like.
The past year has led us all to engage with web technology more than ever before. This shift is set to continue as the future of work changes and many of us remain working from home in some form or another. With the increased demand for online technology and the move towards a fragmented workforce, organisations must ensure that online security is a priority in the strategic management and welfare of the business.
November is here and once again, so is a national lockdown. Home is where we’re at for the vast majority of our days. As with the first lockdown, the restriction in our physical freedom has shone a fresh light on the importance of digital technology and its ability to help our businesses.
We all find ourselves sat in the same virtual world we’ve been living in since we locked down in March. The first few days were a scramble to carve out a work space at home, establish how to continue with immediate tasks, set up (and learn to use!) video conferencing and for many – getting home schooling up and running too.
We write this blog three months into lockdown. Like many others, we are working from home running our business from an office we’ve set up. It’s fully functioning and, over the past few weeks, we’ve adapted and honed our processes to ensure that we can continue to deliver our projects in this new world.
