The past 12 months of the pandemic has pushed many businesses to the brink, and sadly, some passed it. While news of the pandemic dominated headlines around the globe, the corporate sector scrambled to adapt to the new business landscape. Opinion pieces circulated about the changing face of retail, industry, cities, of staff and how they will be working in the post-pandemic world.

GPT was classified from the outset of the Covid-19 outbreak as an essential service. We saw our role in all of this as one of utility. Our mission was simple; what do we need to do for our customers right now? What is the utility of the service they need? How do we adapt to their changing needs?

After the immediate needs of our customers were met this left us at a point of corporate reflection. Like many firms, the pandemic has given us moments to reassess and set new strategies moving forward. Similarly, at GPT it’s allowed us re-align our vision and our goals. Furthermore, we also addressed our CSR impact and made sure we’re on track to being a corporate leader in our field.
