More than ever, people want to feel in contact with the others, that is why articles and ads about true stories have been such a successful these times. 

 

2- The company doesn’t necessarily need to have an office (like in the past):

Think about your company 4 months ago, you would never ever even considering the possibility to work from home, right? Now we’ve learned that it is totally possible to do it, each one of us in our own home, without having to go to the office. 

News still been posted every single day; big publishers and small publishers are doing their job in the same way they ever done, now from home.

Live events have human contact and that is probably what everybody will look for after quarantine, face to face and eye to eye with people that have some common interessents.

Companies that have the power to organize small and good events after the pandemic will score points, be one of them. It will also create a better relationship between the job partners in this end of coronavirus we hope to see soon.
