Movement Control Order (MCO) is an unprecedented move by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19. Understandably, many companies were caught off-guard by this order. Those that have Business Continuity Management (BCM) in-place should be able to continue working, albeit in degraded mode. Those that did not have or have not tested their BCM thoroughly, may have some issues to continue working. So, it is not surprising that some managers still require the staff to come to the office, defying the order, just to have a face-to-face meeting.
One segment that is enjoying an increase is business is those that are providing solutions that can allow employees to work from home. Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Amazon Chime, Cisco Webex and many others are some of those examples. And many companies have to take the leap and adopt these tools to allow business functions to continue during this tested time. At the same time, it provides the social distancing required to help to reduce the rate of the COVID-19 infection. Undoubtedly, this adoption will spur more digital adoption within organizations within the next few months.
