At the end of the 19th century, Festive season began to be celebrated massively. Since then, many are the changes and advances that have been emerging to transform these holidays exponentially. For example, years after the Edison presented the first light bulb that worked 48 hours in a row (1879), the bulbs were perfected and began to be used for decorative purposes for this time of year. Also, from 1940/1950 the custom of sending holiday cards to loved ones began.

Inventions and advances have been changing the way people celebrate Christmas and in recent years, technological transformation has allowed change on a much larger scale. However, in this 2020, digital resources are becoming increasingly important, due to the social distance that we must respect in order to avoid a third wave of COVID-19 infections. 2020 will undeniably bring digital into our festive season. 

Distance celebrations

With the arrival of the coronavirus, the use of technology to make video calls soared and this trend has not diminished. These holidays will be marked by video calls between family, friends and work colleagues in order to “get together”. Digital will allow us to get together this festive season. 

In fact, if we search Google for information on how to make a video call, we will have more than 1,000,000 results. This figure is a real record and is a clear example of how our habits have changed with the pandemic.

If digitalisation has arrived at Christmas, why not apply it to your business?

2020 has been a year full of difficulties and everything indicates that 2021 is not going to start being simple either. So, for this holiday season, ask for the digital transformation for your business! The use of technology is the best ally for Finance and Human Resources Directors when it comes to simplifying their day-to-day work.

We will continue to work remotely, so tools that allow you to work collaboratively despite the distance, such as Talentia HR Suite, are essential. Creating a ‘digital workplace’, which facilitates continuous and clear communication between teams, has slipped into the top 3 of HR departments’ priorities, according to independent analyst Markess.

On the other hand, in the face of a changing context, reliable and real-time financial data is a necessity. Financial departments need to be more agile than ever to guarantee the profitability and continuity of their companies and to do so, they demand tools that simplify their day-to-day work, such as Talentia Financial Suite.
