The economic and social impacts of the coronavirus pandemic have affected organisations and businesses in multiple ways. The lockdown restrictions implemented by governing bodies, have resulted in organisations changing their behaviours from conventional methods of face-to-face engagement in physical settings, onto digital platforms. This study aims to identify the challenges pertaining to organisational behaviour during the covid-19 pandemic. Recommendations are made to facilitate organisations to implement changes in their behaviour and enhance employee engagement in the new normal world. This study is implemented through a systematic review of published and grey literature sources. Results indicate that motivation, adaptation, continual learning and building trust are challenges important to overcome within the new normal world.
