James Tomes, Telgian Holdings, Inc. President and CEO, recently sat down with Arizona Real Estate (AZRE) magazine to look at what’s ahead this year for the fire, life safety and security industry leader as the company celebrates its 35th anniversary in business.
In addition, he offered his thoughts on the unique challenges facing Arizona businesses of all types in 2021 and how they can continue to successfully adapt to the changes wrought by COVID-19.
“Good planning contemplates recovery of facilities and redundancy in supply chains,” explains Tomes. He continues, “What is new about COVID is the cultural impact on an organization. What does it mean to lead and motivate your people when they no longer have the social connection of seeing each other daily in person? When your team is meeting virtually, it is difficult to feel that team culture that is integral to the well-being of our associates. I think that will be the biggest challenge for companies in 2021. Each company has its own unique culture, and leadership needs to figure out how to regain it once people return or, alternatively, create a new culture with either a flex or remote workforce.”
