The COVID-19 recovery is set to stem from digital businesses who can think fast and cater to new challenges that are presented by the pandemic. We work with many technology companies who are keen to explore how key hires can help them revolutionise how we live and work with technology during the pandemic. But as technology goes on to play a central role in our global economic recovery, we look at how three of our hires have already played a major role.
