What the future looks like for businesses after Covid-19
There is much more to the future Post Covid-19 than just pulling off the "dust sheets" and restarting business operations as they were before. Companies will be working out new ways to get their employees back in the offices and working safely. Supplies will need re-ordering and everyday processes re-booting. Sectors, like hospitality, may have to stay mothballed for a bit longer before it’s wise to re-open and demand picks up, but even if it's not happening at the moment– there is a feeling that now is a right time for preparations to be made.
