The pandemic changed business culture
While a gradual shift to a remote-working model had been expected to take place even before the pandemic, the crisis has significantly accelerated the trend. Enterprises that have changed their business culture and technological adoption have learned to iterate, adapt, and overcome.
“As in every other part of the world, enterprises in the Nordics also faced extreme disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Hilde Walter Moland, Head of End User Services at TietoEVRY. “Nordic organizations doubled their efforts in terms for building digital capabilities and accelerating transformation. Some of their other concerns included the well-being, health and safety of employees, work-life balance, and job and financial security. These challenges have led organizations to seek consulting-led approaches to maintaining business continuity and operational excellence.”
Challenges in creating a secure and effective hybrid working environment for employees
Changing lockdown rules, the rapid shift to the remote working model and declining revenues were also a concern. To overcome these challenges, several enterprises have already started adopting managed digital workplace services and are specifically focusing on hybrid work strategy, employee safety and organization culture.
The pandemic has highlighted the gaps in the existing workplace models
Connecting with employees, increased workplace complexities, dispersed workforces, increased security risks and digital exhaustion are some of the challenges enterprises in the region face. These challenges have increased the enterprise demand for managed employee experience services to support workplace collaboration and communication.
Focus on new ways of working to further boost employees' resilience for future challenges
Like every other part of the world, enterprises in the Nordics also faced extreme disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Enterprises doubled their efforts in terms for building digital capabilities and accelerating transformation.
