While more than eight million South Africans have returned to work under level 3 of the lockdown regulations, many people have also embraced the new normal when it comes to work.

Under the Level 4 and Level 5 of the national COVID-19 lockdown, South Africans were forced to work from home, essentially transforming the digital landscape.

When it comes to digital transformation, COVID-19 has been a massive accelerant.

Businesses with long-term transformation deadlines have been forced to bring them forward dramatically: what was once planned for 18 months’ time, now has to be ready immediately.

Thibault Dousson, General Manager of Lenovo Southern Africa says the office space has been evolutionized.

“Do we need to rethink the office? The answer is yes. Can everybody work from home? No absolutely not. There are people that must still have space or there must be technology or connectivity. It’s just not possible for them to work from home.”

Dousson says digital transformation is a journey – but the current crisis has forced it to happen quicker than anyone anticipated and although an initial resistance to this shift is to be expected, businesses that implement the necessary changes quickly will benefit from the profound value of digital transformation and reap its many rewards.
