Covid-19 pandemic reminds us that life is a repetitive cycle. A hundred years ago, the Spanish flu swept the globe and infected about a third of the world’s population at the time. It was one of the deadliest pandemics in human history which took the lives of tens of millions people.
We do not know how Covid-19 will fare against Spanish flu. However, we do know that we are part of a major event in human history so our role, action and contribution in this pandemic will reflect what the future world will become.
Along with the changes caused by the pandemic, business habit is also gradually changing. “Working from home” has overnight taken over the old practice of “working at office”. All of a sudden office becomes redundant. Smart business owner adapts quickly and adopts more efficiency measures by moving to more flexible and cheaper alternatives such as Serviced Office, Coworking Space or even Virtual Office. By doing so, they save both overhead expenses and capital outlay which they can invest in other areas such as human resources and/or information technology. In effect, they have applied the 3A (Adapt, Adopt, Adept) formula successfully.
Serviced Office, Coworking Space & Virtual Office is an innovative strategy that gives new perspective for businesses and their work pattern. For start up companies, this strategy allows them to start their business with minimal capital and to focus more on product and human resources development. For established companies, it allows them to react faster when they need to expand or contract.
Pandemic is not a pleasant situation especially as it usually leads to crisis. However, crisis may lead to opportunity. The Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of two Chinese characters, which separately specify “danger” and “opportunity”. The crisis caused by this pandemic has given us the opportunity to be more hygienic and more environmentally friendly as well as more efficient in utilizing resources.
