2020's Impact and Preparing for a Post-COVID Workplace

Updated: Mar 9, 2021


Since March 2020, the Coronavirus has impacted the way we socialize, dine, learn, and work, necessitating adaptation and creative solutions to stay productive and healthy.


Some businesses have pivoted to a model where employees work from home and others have remained open at their physical locations while adjusting office procedures, layouts and technologies to better protect their employees, patients, students, or customers and keep teams connected and secured.


IT departments, technology directors, and network providers had to think fast to adapt to sudden shutdowns and the constantly-evolving changes with re-opening, including:


Looking Ahead


As vaccines are distributed, businesses should start to consider what a post-COVID workspace should provide. Will a focus on cautious safety shift us back to individual offices and cubicles, or will it mean a more centralized hub to gather, collaborate, and work together on projects in one large open-concept center? Team meetings and collaboration have been something missed by many employees and managers, so now is the time to prepare your digital infrastructure and network.


We’re working with clients to evaluate their digital infrastructure, regardless of when “normalcy” will return. No matter the changes on the horizon, there is one thing that remains consistent: security and infrastructure are still imperative to successfully run a business.
