Articles online related to this topic have different focuses but they all tend to revolve around the keyword – resilience. Merriam-Webster has two definitions for this – the second being ‘an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change’. Times colonist Trevor Hancock said: “This is where a different understanding of resilience might be helpful: Not bouncing back to the past way of doing things, but bouncing forward to a new way of doing things, out of the situation that is causing the stresses and into a new, better alternative future.”
To my knowledge, businesses have never been affected on such a global scale before. Many businesses have show resilience by reacting and adapting to the situation well. Those that can have moved their workforce to home offices. Technology is being used to improve communication more than ever. Governments are offering financial support to keep doors open and fund the changes. Proactive, operational change has required businesses to adapt to survive – but, as John C. Maxwell said – will they grow? SmartHire is there for SME’s. Simplifying hiring processes – that is our reason for existence. As business hiring needs change, we have grown. We have bounced forward.
We want to help share what we’ve learned over the years. How adapting to change has directed us to research alternatives to the ‘norm’.
