With vaccines rolling out at a rate of upwards of 2 million doses per day, the White House has said that we can begin to expect a return to something more closely resembling normal by midsummer. Along with the increasing vaccine supply, consumer confidence is on the rise, according to the Conference Board, which is another good sign for businesses.
We’d like to give you the same advice we’re giving our clients right now – expect a quick reopening and start planning for it today. Businesses that are prepared with a plan and a team in place will be best positioned to hit the ground running and get results.
Businesses with a Flexible Operating Model Will Win
As we saw early on in the pandemic, companies who were willing and able to pivot were the ones that survived and thrived (check out our previous blog for more on how business has changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic). Going forward, we expect that same flexibility will allow businesses that were previously closed or operating at limited capacity to turn on the spigot once again.
