Life during this ongoing pandemic has taught us a few lessons. What used to be exceptions have now become the norm. We are learning new ways of going about our normal business. Where possible, for life to continue unabated, we have transitioned some very important activities which hitherto were done in-person and in physical locations, to online platforms. The buzzwords of today are e-work, e-classroom, and remote.
No doubt, the relics of COVID-19 will continue to be part of our very existence long after an efficacious vaccine has been found and the corona virus has become history. In the workplace, the pandemic has created a demand for some specific skill sets. There is a strong likelihood that those skills will continue to feature prominently in future job descriptions.
Gwen Moran highlights six skills that employees will need to thrive in a post-pandemic workplace. Of particular importance for the purpose of this post, is the need for potential new hires to master the use of digital technologies and collaboration tools. Most organizations will continue to use hybrid models in their operations and the ability to adapt will be necessary.
In order to collaborate with a purpose to meet the needs of all manners of remote staff and work teams, YourKnow is the platform that delivers with a focus on a word as the end product. Now more than ever, employees would have to be better with their words. With more people working remotely, communication management is a must have. There is no better collaboration tool that equips groups to co-write in real time as well as sequentially in an efficient and effective way like YourKnow. The file permissions functionality built into the group feature allows Admins to have control over what gets shared and with whom. Just Me is yet another feature which is a user’s personal space to write and/or upload their reflections, meeting minutes, and notes which can be shared with group members if so desired.
