Work From Home


In the digital age, leveraging online administrative tools has become an indispensable asset for businesses, revolutionizing traditional management practices. From streamlined communication to enhanced efficiency, these tools offer a transformative solution, empowering organizations to navigate the complexities of modern business with unprecedented ease.

Blended working conditions are very common as many companies juggle between in office working and working from home. Some companies have opted to adopt this for even more procedures, such as interviews. Here are some top tips to master your upcoming Zoom job interview.

 The ongoing Covid-19 outbreaks suggest that a hybrid way of working could become the norm. This is especially likely in service industries where in-person presence is not as critical to operations. 

With hybrid work, the workplace is no longer inside the four walls of the corporate office—it's an ecosystem of employees working from home, in coworking spaces, and the office.

Just when tourism was booming and it felt like the world was becoming smaller, Covid exploded and pushed us all apart – literally. We dove into our own bubbles where we learnt new ways to earn, educate and entertain.

Sometimes we need a mental and physical break from our busy lives for the sake of our well-being. Taking breaks helps us recharge and refocus on what is important in life.

Much of the business focus over the past two years have been on minimising the disruption caused by the global pandemic.

October 2021 is Mental Health Awareness Month, and according to the SA Society of Psychiatrists, “Mental health is the biggest threat in 2021.” When the global pandemic Covid-19 hit, it brought along the physical illness, coupled with increased mental health problems which naturally spilled over to the workplace.

Emotional agility, another new requirement evolving from the pandemic, refers to one’s ability to positively experience thoughts, emotions and events and allows people to understand how certain emotions will affect their behaviour.

One of the major legacies of the pandemic is an expectation by workers that they will be allowed to work remotely more often, according to a new study Decoding Global Ways of Working by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and The Network, including local partner organisation CareerJunction, which included almost 209,000 participants in 190 countries and 1,421 in South Africa. It’s the second in a series of publications that BCG and The Network are releasing about the pandemic’s impact on worker preferences and expectations.

While many institutions grappled in 2020 with a sudden and dramatic shift to online learning, technology mediated learning is in Boston’s DNA.
