Will Coronavirus Accelerate The Future Of Work In Africa? This has been the question lingering through my mind couple of months ago before the birth of EADfix.
I doubt if things will return to normal in the African market place after COVID-19. After this pandemic, we will be entering into a new marketplace. Education, healthcare, financial services and all other sectors are and will experience a shift after this crisis. There is already and will continue to be a serious disruption in workplace culture across Africa. COVID-19 has caused rapid digitization in key sectors across Africa in the last few weeks and the spread of new technologies are ushering in a new era of economic disruption.
Sometimes when I look at the African continent especially my country Ghana, I feel we are not aware of what is coming regarding how the future workforce and marketplace will look like. The COVID-19 crisis is and will push Africans to be intentional at adopting new thinking, new solutions, new skills and new ways of doing business. Professionals and businesses should be worried about the impact the disruption by COVID-19 is causing and will cause for the next few weeks and months.
Now across the continent, from Ghana to Nigeria to Kenya to Zimbabwe to Malawi, educational institutions who never took online education began to turn to virtual learning options to keep educating their students, churches and religious leaders using digital platforms to reach out to their followers, conference and workshop organizers depending on online conferencing platforms to run virtual events, mental health workers and counselors leveraging on digital platforms (telemedicine) to connect with those in need of their services, the high use of fintech solutions by even the common man is on the rise the way we buy and access financial services is changing, cybersecurity is and will be on the rise because the more people work from home there is high risk of cyber attacks among many others.
One of the things that we can all agree on, and have witnessed across the globe is how important digital solutions and the internet has become in our society and in our economies. And while access to the internet and these digital solutions is still not readily available to about 4 billion (!) people, many of these tools have enable companies to leverage the power of the internet to reach and impact the lives of people that don't have.
Truthfully, if you weren't sure if digital was the way to go for your business before now, it's time to look at your options again. For many businesses there lies a huge opportunity to retain and attract customers by moving your offline services to a digital offering. Think about the high value products and services that you have that you can sell online through your own online store or other platforms, and events that you can host virtually using virtual summit tools, or moving your consultations to digital meeting rooms and increase interaction using collaboration tools. And guess what? It's been proven likely that you will be able to cut significantly on costs, increase productivity and efficiency to name a few advantages.
Realizing that both consumers and businesses are struggling in an economic recession, we had to find a way to serve those sufferers specifically, with different pricing structure or new opportunities they can leverage to make it through. This is not the time to commercialise on the back of the crisis because we're genuine in our outreach.
In a recession, people will make hard choices about what to cut out of their lives. If you can give them a more cost-efficient alternative to what they’re cutting out, you’ll stand to win big and that has been our mantra in this few weeks.
Work places around the world will need to adjust to a new normal to keep people safe and business running smoothly. We've combined our strategic insights and operational knowledge to create our back to work Application called EADfix, helping customers prepare, protect and perform.
Technology today allows many things that are inconceivable or impractical in the past. Do you think we can use it to solve start-ups and businesses affected by the pademic?
