"Technology has a huge part to play in the return to work. This will be an enterprise resource planning challenge."
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the crucial challenge organisations had to overcome was the ability to scale infrastructure to facilitate remote working. Contrastingly, now that we are in the recovery phase, a focus on returning to the workplace is presenting an enterprise resource planning challenge, balancing the availability of employees with the readiness of locations, the availability of their supply chain and market demand.

We are helping clients address these challenges right now and importantly, we are also using technology to ensure our own employees feel confident to return to the workplace at the right time.

This technology will be made available to our clients as we move through this period.
