2020 is a year we will never forget. The COVID-19 pandemic was and continues to be a devastating event that claimed lives and forced us to live and work like never before. The changes we have made because of the pandemic have made us work smarter and more efficiently in a lasting manner.
Work Smarter & Save Time
The pandemic forced most people to work from home. This remote working meant we gained time because travel for work was eliminated. With less travel and with working from home, there were fewer trips spent for things like gas, dry cleaning, and lunches. In fact, some employees found themselves working more productively from home!
Work Smarter & Technology Wins
One result from the pandemic is our reliance on technology. That reliance is a good thing because that technology enabled us to work from home and be productive in a safe environment. For example, video conferencing like Zoom became a constant presence. It allowed us to stay visually in touch with our coworkers and customers. Electronic signature software like eSignToday allowed us to keep businesses running without the need to physically meet in person. We no longer needed to rely on old fashioned pen and paper to get work done.
By adapting to change and the challenges brought by the pandemic, we learned how to work smarter. Technology helped and continues to help us along the way in making us be smart and efficient with our time.
