How things be different for your business in the ‘new normal’ of 2020

In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the impact of COVID-19 on the global workforce.

An estimated 2.7 billion employees globally have shifted to working remotely due to lockdowns and social distancing measures. There were also unfortunate cases of layoffs because some businesses were forced to close.
