“I believe that the pandemic has brought about changes to the corporate routine, with lessons ranging from breaking the dogmas that nothing makes things grow better than the master’s , up to the most striking one’s, involving technology. For a great variety of reasons, the productivity índex has increased, with people working remotely, in Home office mode and overvalued difficulties for system access, Information security, and other technological hurdles overcome, with creativity and innovation speeded up
on account of a half-compulsory need.” This report comes from Delphos‘ president, Elisabete Prado.
According to Ms. Prado, the company has not returned to its presential activities, albeit a number of assumptivos may have started to prepare themselves psychologically for this instance. As Rio de Janeiro, where the Company headquarters is located, comprises the epicenter of the Delta variante, the Company defined that only when all staff has been vaccinated with the two doses, will presential return of activities be determined. Company forecast is that this shall occur at the beginning of November.
It has been defined that thIs return will take place with 100% of the collaborators in a fully presential regime. “With all in the Company , we shall carry out an evaluation of a hybrid , system to be implemented, but still without a definite model. An important variable shall be the model our clients will adopt . As we are a service provider, we need to comply with commercial requirements and conformities”, argues the Company leader.
Every possible care was taken for the team to return safety. The Headoffice has undergone several minor refittings to enable glass panes to be opened, and desk distribution was reprogrammed for distancing. “We will be in compliance with the protocola, and those with which we are strictly concerned , as they refer to the lives and health of our collaborators, who shall be in the first place, ” states Ms.Prado. She also explains that several changes occurring along the last 18 months of distancing from work, in view of the circumstances shall be incorporated to the new work routines, as they have proven to be relevant. She also trusts that each collaborator shall bring forth some contribution to improvement as, on account of this distancing by decrease , everyone has discovered a “way of doing the same things differently and better”.
Delphos did not need to interrupt any of its activities ; clients were serviced in any activities at the same speed and excelente highlighting deliveries, and “with the respect we have for our contracting parties”, emphasizes the Company President. To such purpose, she reveals that the IT area was of basic importance to the presential work, vis-a-vis remote work.
“We were all able to carry out the transition in less than 3 days, with all collaborators accessing their bases and systems, with full information security. Delphos is a service Company, albeit with a very strong technological bias, and a well-trained team. A proprietary system providing support, with specialist cores for each segment, has proven to be very positive at this adverse moment.
Moreover, virtual Communications plataforms have never been so extensively accessed. “Interaction with clients have become much more fluid. What had been dealt with at presential meetings,following heavy traffic, a bureaucratic agenda, rarely with all those involved being available at the same venue at the same, started to be dealt with online in a much speedier and direct manner, encompassing all topics. People became much more accessible. The Marketing area obviously became ever more evident in this scenario, as it became much more visible and evident. The images behind, the way to reach the consumer, the quality of the publicity material, and the other intrinsic arts have never been so demanded and observed “, closes Delphos ‘ president, Elisabete Prado.
