Focusing on #WhatsNext… together

As the new shoots of recovery appear, it’s time to switch from survival mode to planning for the future

With the vaccination programme in full swing and the recovery on the horizon, for the first time in over a year there’s finally a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. The past few months have been a real struggle both personally and professionally, but the great news is you’ve made it! Now it’s time to look forward to ensure you’re in the best possible shape to make the most of the recovery. This will be vital to the UK, as businesses like yours are the heartbeat of the economy. So what’s next? Like many businesses, the chances are you ramped up your digital resources to connect to your team so they can work and collaborate from home, and perhaps also to increase your online revenues to keep your business up and running. The challenge this year is to rebound as strongly as possible.

Digital technology likely played an important role, so take stock and review what’s been implemented to identify what’s working best. Then, taking this on board, reimagine what your digital transformation strategy will look like going forward to ensure your business is adaptable enough to not only accelerate through the recovery, but also guide you successfully through future challenges. Here’s how Vodafone has been collaborating with businesses just like yours to help them survive the pandemic and flourish in the future…
