As buzzwords go, Agility and Mobility occupy top-of-mind for many PMETs. At ONG&ONG, these terms have been increasingly embraced over the last five years; the COVID-19 pandemic has only served to burnish their importance.
It is no overstatement to say that 2020 has been a year of Disruption for businesses of every scale. Fortunately, we were not caught entirely off-guard. ONG&ONG had previously invested in moving all our work processes into the digital cloud, meaning that our daily operations can proceed with just a secure WiFi wired router, with all personnel accessing a common pool of resources from anywhere in the world.
While affection for this new way of working did not blossom overnight, the pandemic has ensured its wholehearted adoption. It has also highlighted the differences between generations and mindsets. Whereas professionals of a certain vintage prefer a dedicated desk and office area, most millennials and those who come after them are adept at working anywhere, equipped with a tablet or simply using their mobile devices. Bridging this difference, ONG&ONG advocates inter-generational sharing, with our team leaders conscientiously mentoring their juniors, while giving the latter freedom to express their opinions. This has worked out to our advantage, as we are able to bring a diversity of solutions to our clients.
