The pandemic has fast-tracked companies’ digital transformation. The reality is that artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and virtual reality are no longer in the realm of science fiction - they are going to be the norm. An employee needs to be comfortable with these tech tools and be able to work with them effectively.

The sudden lockdown taught many of us to think out of the box and to think under extreme pressure. These qualities will benefit us as we navigate our new way of life.

Businesses not only managed to find new ways of delivering their services, but they also diversified or developed new products. In time to come, this creativity will be crucial.

Lifetime Learning

These challenging times have been an eye-opener. With so many people losing their jobs, becoming a lifetime learner is crucial. The World Economic Forum says that 35 percent of the skills deemed essential today will change in the next five years.

Professionals with advanced job skills will stand out in a tight job market. It is good to know that acquiring skills is more accessible today, as there are many free and open online courses available. Lockdown is an opportunity to improve our skills and prepare for the post-pandemic job market.
