8. Imagining our lives post-COVID, what do you think the main takeaway for our clients will be?
Ago Figueredo, Technical Consultant, BA:
I think we proved to ourselves that we are able to maintain communication and high quality deliverables with a distributed workforce. This COVID setting only enforced this to action.
Carla Pajak, Product Strategy Principal, CHI:
That physically being together is not the only way to build trust and credibility. We can still knock it out of the park...from our respective "parks".
Lauren Blackburn, Senior UX Design Consultant, CHI:
We're incredibly flexible, and produce great things regardless of where we're physically located.
Mace Allen, Senior UX Research Consultant, CHI:
We're here to support you no matter the circumstances. We're flexible, and we adjust to any need.
Madison Ross-Ryan, UX Design Consultant, CHI:
I think the biggest takeaway for our clients will be an increased sense of empathy for both client and consultant. I've gotten to know my clients in a much more personal way because of the pandemic, and I think that sense of close-ness won't go away when we go back to the office.
Rachel Manigault, Senior Manager of Business Intelligence, CHI:
Hopefully this proves that a person's physical location does not need to be controlled, and that a teammate's location within the world also doesn't matter either (whether in the UK, States, or BA!)
Rishit Shah, Technical Analyst, CHI:
Remote work is not only possible but it’s also pretty efficient. People can be happy working remotely and this happiness can lead to better performance.
