Preparing for our #NewNormal


Preparing for our #NewNormal

In Australia, we are beginning to see the positive outcomes of having extensive measures in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. With cases reducing daily, state governments are in the initial phases of easing restrictions. As they do so, businesses are beginning to consider what returning to work will look like in the weeks and months ahead. This page outlines our thoughts and some solutions to support organisations to be ready for the ‘new normal’.

Drivers of Change

The world will never be quite the same following COVID-19. We see five potential drivers of change pushing businesses to adapt, transform the way workplaces are organised and drive the adoption of digital technologies.

Changed expectations around food

Through digital services and retail, we’re able to ensure the engagement of stakeholders both within and beyond the workplace. These services provide solutions such as pre-ordering, grab & go, and contactless payment among others.

COVID-19 is here for the medium term

Having experienced the effects of the virus across the world, we’re aware of the potential for second and even third waves of the virus to emerge. Sodexo can help you prepare your business and your workplace for this.

The shift to remote working

Even after workplaces reopen, remote working arrangements are likely to continue, because of business continuity plans, or to enable flexibility for employees with caregiving needs. Sodexo can help you to create a more effective, tech-driven workspace to facilitate different working styles and arrangements.

The importance of sustainability

This is an opportunity to rethink how businesses can reduce the environmental impact of their operations. For example: from a supply chain perspective, the new normal allows us to focus on local sourcing of fresh products. From energy management to responsible sourcing and reducing waste, Sodexo can help.
