In this episode of Business Talk with Michael Avery, Moodley highlights the difficulty businesses have faced over the past 12 months, in maintaining relationships with clients sympathetically, while also managing and looking after the well-being of employees.
She talks Michael through the importance of strong leadership to guide employees through such a disconnected and highly stressful time, warning against burnout as a result of being online more in a work-from-home environment.
The upside to the pandemic has been the rush to online, with a surge in technology adoption, both by employees and clients. As a result, Moodley says that Old Mutual has accelerated its digital journey.
