EKEZIE, Chibueze Macrae David, GABRIEL, Justin Mgbechi Odinioha, EKWEOZOR, Uche


The impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on business organisations across the globe have been dramatic and unprecedented. While some organisations have collapsed, others have managed to survive and maintained stability; whereas some others have flourished tremendously. The determinant of what happens to any organisation is predominantly a function of her response to the covid-19 imposed challenges. In this paper, we present a broad review of literature rooted in work and organizational psychology, and related fields, for making sense of the implications for employees, teams, and work organizations. In so doing, virtual organisation is projected as the panacea for corporate adjustments. The use of virtual platforms, telematics, and computer procedures enable working without physical presence was observed to have received a boost especially as governments across the world adopted lockdown measures in a bid to stem the tide of the spread of the pandemic. The paper concludes that the future of business belongs to those organisations that have developed or are willing to develop capacity for virtual operation.
