The number of people that have started working from home...............
Today’s blog is by Margaret Stewart, Director of HR, and Administration at SafeSourcing Inc.
The number of people that have started working from home has spiked since the beginning of the pandemic. While not all have that ability, like nurses, drivers, and essential employees, those that do have shown great ability to adapt and maintain performance. Because of the pandemic and the ability for many to perform their duties from home, it has led to more demand of home services.
One such demand has been at home internet services. With schools and work being remote, as well as the reluctance or outright inability to see family and friends, web-based services have been a necessity. In fact, it has even led some to try and make internet services more affordable and available for those without access or resources.
Another significant increase is the number of home delivery services. Uber eats and Door Dash are just two of the rising new companies to seize the demand for at home food delivery. In the same realm, the demand for food and supply pick up has increased significantly too. With grocery store and big box store pickups, some even available the same day it is ordered. This fulfills the needs of everyday goods and groceries, without the need of ever leaving your car.
Another change we have seen is the increased ability to perform almost every need from home, from doctor consultations, watching new movies, remodeling your kitchen, or even buying a car. With the right tools available, nearly any task can be performed in a new way. Even within your company or organization. Using the tools of a procurement partner, like SafeSourcing, can help you get the services or supplies you need. While you maintain the business activities you need to, SafeSourcing can detail your project needs, find the right people who fit those needs and collect pricing and other information to help you choose the best vendor for you.
