Covid19 has prepared us
Following years of Covid19, the IT industry has changed. And this change helps now during the War in Ukraine.
No, the war isn’t a good thing; it is terrible. We are terrified of what is reported from Ukraine villages, cities, and the battlefields. Still, like other human activities, it mirrors how we have changed.
As Russia’s invasion started, many Israeli companies found themself dealing with employees under physical attack, with a lack of perspective on how long this war will be and how it is impacting the possibilities to work as usual.
This crisis also affected the LET ME team.
Many professionals with their families had to relocate to other parts of the country and abroad. Connections are disjoined, and the usual way of life has ended.
However, the most significant part of this essential working power is back at the desk. Yep, those desks could be in Kyiv, Ivano-Frankivsk, or Warsaw, but our experience working from home and all the solutions to support this alternative have been growing last few years.
So yes, about 20-30% of human resources are problematic, but most of the IT industry is reorganized and follows the missions.
This resilience will help with future events too. Because the pandemic and the war don’t stop our processes, we can proceed with what was planned and support our colleagues remotely.
It is a new brave word. Better prepared for critical changes, more elastic, and more effective.
We will probably update the way of working in the next few years, but it won’t be the same again. And in my opinion, it is the good part.
What changes do you feel at your working place as a result of the war in Ukraine?
