Welcome Words by Wendy: Winter is Coming

by Wendy Edie
eCom's Managing Director

We are putting our creative minds together to deliver solutions that will cater for the future of work.

After 7 months of COVID response, many within my network are reporting they feel that their energy and creative ideas are at an all-time low.  Then there is the news full of warnings of a ‘bumpy winter’, you can see why people will be feeling a ‘dip’. 

Making plans

I believe the best ideas often follow a ‘dip’ and that is why we are making plans at eCom.

I have been consistent from the very start about our working from anywhere (apart from the office) approach to protect our eCom families.  We were first to issue company facemasks, well before it was compulsory to wear these in public, and we are rolling out a Flu vaccine voucher scheme well in advance. 

Anticipating needs

I am trying to anticipate the needs of all the team so that we stay safe, observe the rules that apply in our region and be sensible, mindful and find the joy in each day.

That same focus on the anticipation of needs extends to our clients and forms a huge part of our plan.  We know that your needs have probably changed during these times as the trends we see are: 

  • COVID as a driver for change – economic decline, change in market place needs
  • Climate Change – focus on NetZero targets, electrification of energy, homes, transport
  • Social Justice – economic division, accessibility and projects being a force for good
  • Technological impact – cyber security, robotics, AI changing job roles

Being Creative

So we are putting our creative minds together to deliver solutions that will cater for the future of work.

There is no certainty about what may happen and I know that some will find it harder than others will, so here at eCom, know that we are #HereToHelp

Keep safe and keep going,

Wendy
