One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: Same Industry, New Look

I-Connect007 Research Team | 05-21-2020

Learning a lesson from challenges is one thing, but implementing changes based on those lessons is quite another.

I-Connect007 regularly surveys leaders in the electronics industry to bring you important and relevant information that helps you make better decisions. What lessons have you learned during the COVID-19 crisis, and what changes have you made?

Nearly half of those who responded to our recent survey said they had made changes to the work environment. Many have continued to work remotely as the health and safety of employees is of the utmost concern.

For those still working on-site, factories have implemented social distancing wherever possible, adding shifts to reduce congestion, defining high-traffic areas for cleaning, constantly cleaning their workspaces, providing PPEs for employees, requiring them to submit to temperature checks, and overall practicing better personal hygiene.

Of course, all of this comes with its own set of challenges, especially for those who are not accustomed to working from home. PCB, EMS, and OEM respondents all said they have made some changes to their budgets, as well as the way they conduct sales, train employees, and operate within the supply chain.

When you take the time to respond to I-Connect007’s surveys, we are better able to collect and share unique information solely aimed at helping you be more streamlined, profitable, and successful. The economy will not recover overnight, but it’s clear PCB leaders are flexible and making necessary changes as they adapt to new realities.
