Wherever you are, the first few weeks of lockdown are disorienting for everyone. Now that we're multiple weeks into the COVID-19 shutdown, a lot of us are finding our daily groove while trying to stay mentally and physically healthy. At least we're hoping you are, on an individual level.
For businesses, it's a whole different story. The first few weeks of lockdown, "non-essential" businesses were figuring out how to keep their employees healthy and how to create a remote, secure working environment so business operations could continue uninterrupted.
Now that they have a few weeks of remote operations behind them, businesses are turning their attention to the future.
How do they continue operating in a changed world? How do businesses fortify their operations to be more resilient in future crises? How does my business contribute to my local community, to my industry, to my entire ecosystem?
Likewise, a clear line is emerging between businesses that have human-centric processes built in to their DNA, and those who have yet to adopt HCD principles. Those who have long made it a practice to get to know the needs of their customers and employees are finding it much easier to operate in this new normal.
We explore these questions, topics, and more in this month's articles.
As always, we love to hear from you. Drop us a line anytime if you have questions or just want to chat about the human-centered design process.
