11 Industries Going Virtual
The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of tech for a lot of businesses and there are opportunities available for creative solutions.
Think wealth management, financial planners and CPAs. Who wants or needs to go to an office to review a portfolio or tax return?
1. Financial Services
Same thing as #1. Think family law and estate planners.
2. Legal Services
More people are working out from home than ever before.
Telehealth and telemedicine are here to stay. Some things you want to take care of now and from the comfort of your home.
4. Healthcare and Medicine
This was already starting to happen just like some of the other ideas in this list. I hope this continues and more innovation levels the playing field.
5. Higher Education
Vet clinics are overwhelmed. Telehealth for pets is here and in the early stages.
6. Pet Health / Vet
More employers will be forced to adopt remote work. HR needs to adapt. How do you keep teams engaged and motivated when they are geographically separate?
7. Human Resources
All sales jobs are now global sales jobs. People are now more comfortable than ever making large purchases from people they've never met in person and that are in a different time zone. Even cars can be bought through an app.
Consultants of all types can get clients in a virtual world easier than ever.
Sure, there will be in person events in the future but my thought is that they will always provide a virtual option.
10. Events and Conferences
Stretching a bit because I think this transition has been happening for a while. However, I know from experience that there are massive industries that still rely on good old pen and paper. With tablets and OCR this is insane.
