COVID19 has caused an unprecedented WFH situation. What changes have you / your teams made that are likely here to stay even when things return to 'normal'? I.e. what is now a new normal for you?

Top Answer : Increased use of Microsoft Teams (for chat groups, as well as audio/video calls) and Zoom for meetings.

We use MS Teams for chat, meetings, videos, file sharing, notes etc.  It is working very well for us.

A daily scheduled Zoom working session so we can simulate the work environment we have become accustomed to has been quite helpful.

Working from home as shown an immense increase in productivity, we will definetly test if we can maintain this over a longer period of time.

We don't yet know what the new normal will be. We see some glimpses of change that's here to stay. I'm actually convinced that work-from-home is not going to disappear. It might not be as pervasive as it is now, because we're forced to work from home. But the virtual collaboration, virtual teams, this ability to work anywhere, anytime, any place is going to continue.  I also think that one-day trips to New York for a meeting, which I've done, will not happen again. Three day trips, which I've done to go to Europe, for a couple of meetings will not happen again. People here are going to be very discriminating when looking at travel, what can be accomplished virtually versus what absolutely needs to happen face-to-face.

There will also be this whole notion of agility and responding quickly. We look at automobile manufacturers that were able to very quickly retrofit their manufacturing kits to produce ventilators in place of cars. Walmart is hiring so many people that they created an app that makes it possible for them to onboard their employees in 24 hours.   For all of you CIOs out there, how long have we been talking about streamlining the onboarding process for employees? The agility that comes from our crisis can create something pretty exciting.
