56.8 percent, to be exact, are working remotely at least part of the time (Upwork, 2020). And the managers believe that 26.7 percent of the workforce will continue to remain fully remote in 2021. Whatever the future holds, as a leader or a manager, you need to take lessons from the past and make smarter decisions about remote work leadership to manage employees working from home.
In March, the world was pushed into the unknown scenario which escalated the digital transformation plans of years into weeks! Since 2021 Q2 has already set its foot forth, here are a few leadership lessons learned from COVID-19 which will come in handy to manage employees in a remote work setting.
Leaders from across industries are worried about all the other intangible factors affecting remote teams. How can you preserve the company values in a virtual environment? What is the impact on the mental health of the employees while working remotely? As the only difference between their life and work is whether they are using a company-provided laptop or their own.
These are some of the many factors that are harder to quantify. But few things are clear from this remote work experiment that we have embarked on.
Here are lessons learned from COVID-19 in the workplace;
Leaders need to set some work cycle that would help the employees to differentiate between the two lives even by staying in the same place. Employees should also try to create a gap between their professional and personal space.
Moreover, COVID-19 has taught us many things about various leadership styles. Every organization has adopted its unique set of processes that would be suitable for it. You need to find your unique approach, what best for you and your employees. How you can support them and create a favorable environment for them to work? All these factors will determine how well you can manage your remote team.
Adoption of AI in the government can improve citizen outcomes and help achieve your agency’s mission.
The constant development of artificial intelligence recently has brought solutions for several pressing challenges that the government face. One of them is witnessed by all, i.e. to combat a global health crisis.
In recent years, governments have been using AI to –
Additionally, AI in the government has been leveling up to help agencies in generating data for evidence-based policymaking, and data-driven decision making. As the private companies have already made cutting-edge investments, it’s time for the public sector as well to expand the horizons for the applications of AI.
While some governments have used AI to restructure some services and reducing expenses, many government agencies are a little behind in adopting full digital transformation. The decision-makers are hesitant to accept major changes following the investment required owing to scrutiny and bureaucratic processes.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic downturn have created opportunities for government to open the doors for process modifications and AI adoption in government.
“All of a sudden, the risk of being constant with no action seems greater than the risk of adopting new technology and processes”
With vTech’s AI Solutions, you can create better, more personalized experiences for customers, measure the expertise of your best people across the organization, and make smarter decisions based on profound insights from data.
Owing to the pandemic, the citizens and businesses are relying on the city, regional, state, or national government agencies for answers to their questions related to medical aid and supplies, employment of personnel, etc.
On the contrary, governments have to figure out ways to continuing the activities safely such as waste collection, public transport, mailing services, and other necessities.
Utilizing AI Tools during the pandemic, civil servants and policymakers have witnessed the value of maintaining and widening AI solutions to make operations smooth and efficient, that quickly address people’s needs.
For instance, the US Department of Health and Human Services is implementing AI for evaluating procurement data, reduce buying time, plan contracts, and get clarity on their spending process across the agency.
It is great that the government is bringing in AI initiatives, but they can look up to companies that have applied machine learning and predictive analytics for improving user experience to apply machine learning in the government sector.
Though the opportunities for AI to improvise the functions of government are clear, the obstacles to slow the application of AI also exist. Change management becomes difficult also because cross-functional management is not a standard practice in all government agencies. This leads to limited AI use cases in government to specific departments or sectors.
If a broader perspective of AI implementation is not there, then AI tools cannot reach their full potential.
Here are a few strategies that leaders can undertake to overcome such limitations while implementing AI –
If you are envisioning a large-scale change for adopting AI in your government agency, then you need to start with smaller projects which yield high impacts to build credibility and enthusiasm. Failures and successes from these projects can help leaders to avoid such problems for future process changes. Pilot projects are ideal in such scenarios to make a big case study for implementing AI technologies.
In the future, it is important to note that AI can touch almost all areas of government, from customer service to automated chatbots to the helpdesk. The government agencies who can embrace this technology can get faster economic recovery, enhanced efficiency, happy workers and citizens, and much more!
To attain the government digital transformation, reorganize your workflows and enhance operations with vTech’s AI Solutions. Introduce AI into your apps and workflows to tap into your agency data and operationalize AI across several departments, such as accounting/finance, customer service, supply chain, logistics, and more.

Blockchain utilizes high-level security compared to other record-keeping systems due to its digital signature and end-to-end encryption. This technology is to be highly secure, appropriate, with tamper-proof recording. Transactions are more secure than other record-keeping systems and to be agreed upon before recorded. After approval of each transaction, it is encrypted and has a proper link to the previous transaction using a hashing method.
At present, businesses require to invest a lot of money to improve and upgrade their previous running systems. With blockchain technology, they can have lower investments or reduce costs with great new opportunities and higher efficiency. They can also cut costs with the third-party vendors within less time and interaction while validating a transaction.
Companies can now trace the products and can focus on the workings of both vendors and suppliers. Earlier it was hard to trace items that usually lead to multiple problems like theft, forgery, and loss of goods, but with blockchain technology, the supply chain becomes more transparent than ever.
Moreover, it helps improve security and prevent fraud in exchange-related businesses. It can also help in verifying the validity of the traded assets.
With the decentralized feature, blockchains can benefit the organization by providing increased efficiency and speed. It removes the unnecessary processes in many fields like payments and solves the time-consuming process and, systematizes them to maximize efficiency. There's no scope of man-made errors with the help of automation.
Every recorded data in a decentralized ledger makes it easy for everyone to trust each other. In short, blockchain technology develops its unique way of data storage to provide a highly efficient process with transparency, trust, and immutability.
