In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • The early action measures T-Systems has taken to ensure their 1,000 employees are accommodated across all their markets during the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • The potential for company growth as COVID-19 has forced employees to work out of their silos and into a new way of collaborating to be more productive including business travel and other seemingly “traditional” methods of operation
  • Working-from-home operations vs office spaces and their impact on office equipment expenses 
  • Shifting from fear, crisis & damage control to moving forward and taking next steps in growth, driving sales and emerging as an active business 
  • The new age of leadership that is taking place in this evolving entrepreneurial landscape since the coronavirus crisis has caused such a global change in the business environment

Interesting Highlights:

  • Daniel Delank spends normally about 60-80% on the road during normal business, which has obviously decreased during the times of COVID-19 
  • T-Systems works in the automotive industry, connectivity, security systems and other digital infrastructures with over 1,000 employees
