COVID-19 has had a far-reaching impact on the global economy. Many businesses are taking unexpected decisions to curtail cost amid pressure on revenue due to slowing demand. Certainly, there are a few lessons for businesses to learn from this crisis.

First, it is glaring that businesses must maintain a flexible operational structure by embracing technology in a bit to adapt to the changing market dynamics. This ensures a smooth transition when implementing remote working structures. Secondly, the need to communicate the business continuity measures with key stakeholders and manage expectations from shareholders, customers, suppliers, and employees, is paramount.
