When the regular business environment was upended this spring, CEO’s turned to IT leaders to make digital transformation and improving the experience of working from home their top priorities.
Now, 6 months after the crisis began, Peter Sayer, in his piece on CIO.com, Exclusive Survey: How IT is Recovering From the COID-19 Crisis, provides a high-level view of the key trends driving IT and key insights from IT Leaders.
✔️ Kristin Myers, CIO at Mount Sinai Health System said, “In a crisis, it’s vital to balance cost cutting with investing in areas that will meet business objectives and add the most value.”
✔️ David Clarke, Strategy and Innovation Leader at PwC, argues that IT leaders should view the pandemic as a digital accelerator rather than a deterrent.
✔️ To decrease burnout among your remote employees, Prasad Ramakrishnan, CIO at Freshworks, recommends to, “Acknowledge that people have a tendency to work harder in times of crisis and explicitly encourage your employees to avoid burnout. Encourage employees to adopt a ‘makers schedule’ — a period of time where they block off their calendar to get some quiet time or engage in physical activity.”
