COVID-19: Adaptability is Critical to Business Success
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread to almost every country in the world since the time it emerged in China earlier this year. The sudden spread of the pandemic has changed the work dynamic at most companies and has put an emphasis on the need to support efficient remote collaboration. As we all process and plan for the realities and unknowns caused by the coronavirus pandemic, organizations also need to adapt quickly.
At EnLume, we are doing everything we can to keep our team safe while continuing to provide the kind of partnership that our clients need to navigate through these difficult times.
The health and safety of our employees is the topmost priority. We have initiated necessary actions to ensure the risk is mitigated, and at the same time shall control the spread of COVID-19. Our team has taken the advice from government officials and medical authorities to do our best to help contain the scale and scope of this pandemic. We have put in place the required measures possible in this regard.
We are fortunate in that our teams are used to working remotely and collaborating virtually using digital tools. Therefore, we have not seen any disruptions in our ability to collaborate with and support our clients.
The project resources are trained and provided with necessary awareness workshops are conducted on personal protective measures for all EnLume workforce.
Investing in Infrastructure
We continue to invest in our “remote work” infrastructure to ensure that collaboration is top-notch and that our people do not bear any significant burdens when it comes to working remotely. We use a suite of tools that enable communication and support our processes to allow the team to focus on the right things.
We have also enacted new processes to ensure communication levels stay high both internally as well as with our clients. This includes starting (or continuing in many cases) daily standups, weekly status meetings, and monthly executive check-ins to ensure we are delivering on our promise.
With COVID-19 evolving each passing day, we too will adapt and evolve our processes to what is needed. We remain flexible so that we can adjust to our own and our clients’ new realities. We firmly believe that we are all better together
