If you tell us this time last year, soon we will be locked up at home. Playing a completely isolated game in a creative way, dealing with some social unrest in public memory, and meeting the CEO when we wear our slippers, we will ask. What are you planning to call this wonderful creativity?
No one can predict what will happen in 2020 — but it is not yet.
Conflict. Public injustice. Civil unrest. Weather problems.
The list of challenges is a tedious task. Both personal and professional, this year tested every retailer and brand manager on the planet.
Our design community collaborates daily with vendors from all over the world. And as these changes take place, we want to understand the ups and downs of this group over the past six months. Representatives, clients and freelancers. We have consulted with C level executives, market leaders, account managers and executives from around the world. They understand how the current 2020 process is shaping up the company.
A year full of challenges, little hope
While the retail industry has been slowly adapting to changing work schedules for some time, almost three-quarters (74%) of clients work from home since March.
The impact of rapid change on such a key and operational process is enormous. As is the impact of many social and economic challenges by 2020.
But even in a crisis, we have already seen a steady increase in profits, which could boost the growth of the retail industry in the next few years. Highlights include:
- When working independently, account managers and brand managers are often able to increase productivity as chief executives.
- Young entrepreneurs find that working together is harder than their older colleagues
- One in five clients believes that job development opportunities have increased during this epidemic
- 42% of managers believe communication with team members has improved when working in the community
- Working from home makes the work isolated, and many marketers say this will affect their work plans to move forward.
- Corporate employees are more eager to return to office than co-workers
- Many sales professionals under the age of 35 believe that long-term training and coaching will have a positive impact on the industry — the same is true for 40% of the company’s employees.
- A quarter of companies expect permanent wages to disappear completely, and demand for job-based jobs has increased dramatically
- Direct and external information is the channel that retailers expect to lose after the disease, but paid public programs, digital media, and podcast support have grown.
- Relaxation during an infectious disease is a dangerous move, with 37% of traders expecting no side effects.
- Many business experts believe that the kind of behavior they will (or do) do is worthwhile when they promise racism, but they are less confident that other types will keep their promise.
When working from home, account managers and brand managers are almost twice as likely to increase their productivity.
Productivity in remote environments
Will working from home make us more efficient? Beautiful coffee machines do not meditate. There is no need to take care of the company plant, and there is no need to talk to your colleagues.
Well, yes and no. This is of course not the same size fits all.
Nearly one-third (32%) of retailers said their work efficiency had increased. When they worked from home, while less than one-third four (23%) of retailers said their performance had dropped dramatically. Others say their level is still the same.
However, when you look more closely at the actual work of the vendors and the impact on their production, these numbers are much higher.
Nearly two-fifths (38%) of account managers and executives and 44% of brand and market managers said their performance has improved when working in ‘house’. On the other hand, half of managers and business owners reported that their productivity levels remained the same, with only 25% reporting an increase.
Activists seem to be doing well in the distance, where senior executives retain the type of productivity. Compared to less experienced colleagues. Although experience means that many older group members can improve their work schedule and find a balance that suits them, that type of activity may work.
In short, the main, manual labor has the opportunity to thrive when attention is increased and interruptions are reduced (despite pets and children!).
Creativity and collaboration
Similar conflicts can be seen in nature.
30% of retail experts said that since they work from home, they have found that creative and collaborative work in manufacturing has become more difficult such as bringing up creative volleyball logo ideas, but similar numbers (31%) indicated that they were easier to operate over time.
However, when you look at the destruction of the answer by age (at a higher level), the principle emerges: young people find that collaboration within the firm is more difficult than staff the other is old.
Young entrepreneurs find that collaborating internally is harder than their older colleagues.
Again, this can be explained by experience and time: effective communication is often based on effective communication. The second is skills that can develop over time. When making decisions and commenting in an isolated area, the confidence that the experience brings is also important.
However, if isolated work is to be a relatively new phenomenon in the world. It should not be overlooked how the nature of such work affects sexual relations.
Job changes and opportunities
When the string starts to close, the market budget is usually the first to be cut . So, when the infectious disease started in March, the evacuation and vacation workers caused a lot of problems for the trading industry.
But some opportunities have emerged, and there are some glimmers of hope that can serve the development of the company.
The shared experience of reducing one and overcoming difficult times together. Means that people will rely more on each other than ever before — both professionally and personally. Almost one-third (31%) of marketers now believe that their managers trust their potential more than before the outbreak.
As many marketing professionals have taken on responsibilities. And other responsibilities over the past six months, 22% believe that during the crisis, job development opportunities have actually increased.
