What Leni Rivera can say in an interview about
Today’s Workplace
:

The Workplace is forever changed because we are forever changed. And there’s no going back.

    • The pandemic changed the way we live and work.

What Leni Rivera can say in an interview about
Today’s Remote Workforce
:

Working Remotely is not the Future, and it’s not just the Present.
It’s the Expectation.

When we think of remote work, and adopting a hybrid work model, we tend to think that this is a concept, or a trend, that emerged because of the pandemic. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Not only has remote work been around for over a decade, but it has also already proven to be a sustainable and effective work model – for both businesses and employees – long before the pandemic struck.

What Leni Rivera can say in an interview
on How the Hybrid Work Model Can Be Improved
:

A “hybrid work model,” which means having workers alternate between working from home and working in the office on designated days, is not a new concept.

What Leni Rivera can say in an interview
on The Future of the Workplace
:

    • Working from home is here to stay. And when the pandemic starts to fade, workers will also be working in trains, airports, corporate hotels, and cafes.
    • Corporate offices will form a part of this new “workplace ecosystem,” and become one of the options available for employees to work.
    • As a result, the focus of the future workplace is shifting from where employees work to how they work, and companies will need to direct their resources to ensure their workers have what they need to be productive, engaged, and happy, regardless of where they are.
