A Plan to Reshape our Economy: Pledge #727 October 2020
‘Old’ ways of working and communicating changed overnight. Around 49% of employees worked from home in Yorkshire & Humber due to covid-19, between April and May. As the potential for remote working at scale has become apparent, issues of geography and distance from goods or services become less important.
Digital connectivity becomes the catalyst for change.
- Deliver Getting Building Fund
- Continue to develop and invest in our Digital Infrastructure
- Capitalise on the potential of smart technology
Step Change in digital connectivity.
Work to deliver this pledge has already begun. In their response to the pandemic, investment decisions and plans for the future, places, businesses, and organisations across the region are already reshaping towards a greener, fairer, stronger future. Check out the case studies below and on our website.
