How to Succeed at Your Job, Post Pandemic


The pandemic has impacted many aspects of how businesses operate, and companies have faced a handful of challenges. In many cases, these challenges have translated to job functions changing and a shift in skills most valued by employers. To make sure you’re on the path to post-pandemic success, we have put together the top three skills that are likely to be in high demand in the “new normal.”

#1 Adaptability
Most people, no matter their industry, have had to exercise some level of flexibility over the past year. The world was already changing rapidly, but the pandemic accelerated it. You will succeed in the “new normal” if you are able to adapt to ever-evolving workplaces and can continuously update and refresh your skills.

#2 Tech Savviness
Even before the pandemic, the growing digital skills gap was apparent across businesses worldwide. Research shows that over 80 percent of open roles now require digital skills of some kind. Technology such as AI, big data, the Internet of Things, and robotics will make businesses more resilient to future pandemics, and anyone that can assist companies to exploit these technologies will be in a great position. Whether you work in a factory or a financial office, you need to be comfortable with these tech tools as well as be able to work with them effectively.

#3 Creativity and Innovative Thinking
We have already seen the importance of creativity and innovation during the pandemic. Businesses that quickly shifted to the new landscape were the ones that excelled. Companies will be looking for individuals with creativity to re-invent, evolve, and rapidly adapt. Creativity and innovation are going to be essential to steer a business through challenges and opportunities that it faces.
