What we’ve learned while living through a pandemic.
Getting through the pandemic crisis has taught us all many things.
We’ve all learned to adapt quickly to changing circumstances.
“We have learned to manage our fears. It has been a real test of our individual and collective resilience.”
Above all, I think its led to the realisation that it is only people who matter. The pandemic has forced people to pause, to reflect, and has created a sense of a need for positive change. As far as business is concerned, I don’t think there will be such thing as a return to ‘normal’.
People will not forget how they have been treated by their organisations during this crisis. We really have seen the very best, and sometimes worst of business and human behaviour during this period.
We need to grasp this opportunity for lasting change. One where business values and treats every unique human being with respect. A change which safeguards the natural environment and reduces harmful working practices. A fairer and more humane approach to business, one firmly rooted in doing the right thing.
“There has never been a better time to build a better world.”
A lot of hard work lies ahead but we should look forward with confidence and optimism. Business can, and should be a catalyst for this.
