:

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.

Returning to the Office
:

As more and more workers return to the office, you can be sure that things will never be the same as they once were—and that’s mostly a good thing! As everyone may be at different levels of adaptation to the new workplace reality, we must try to be patient! (with yourself, with your manager, and with your company).

What Dr. Doll can say in an interview on
Adapting to the Accelerating Work & Life Pace
:

    • The state of the workplace now is described as VUCA-volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. 
    • We are living in an unstable time of rapid change, uncertainty, confusion, and the reality that much of it we can’t control.
    • This makes it challenging to plan, prepare, or anticipate the consequences of our actions; therefore, it generates fear. Humans do not like feeling as though they have control.

What Leni Rivera can say in an interview

:

    • 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.

    • 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.
