The whole world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic, and even the most developed nations are trying hard. Under such circumstances, there has been a growing demand for work from home and online learning.
Many big companies are slowly moving towards a solid plan to continue letting their employees work from home even up to next year. Recently, Lark, a collaboration platform has also started providing its service for free to help working professionals stay connected. Meanwhile, the governments and policymakers are trying to figure out how to ensure the safety of students and children.
Speaking about the conference, Simon Wang, Executive Vice President, TAITRA, said, “As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan’s robust remote working solutions are making their presence felt in international markets. Studies have pointed at the growing future of work trends such as the rise in distributed, dynamic, and on-demand work enabled by next-gen cloud and software delivery. COVID-19 will further accelerate the need for flexible and agile work styles and push the adoption of technologies that improve work-life balance. Top Taiwanese brands have been working on a war footing to offer solutions that will help companies and educational institutions across the world to enable employees and students to work agilely, collaboratively, and securely–with access to specialized support mechanisms.”
