Although much of the world is experiencing a second or even third wave of the coronavirus, news of a vaccine has made it easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The entirety of this year has been one of uncertainty and social unrest. To say there have been countless lessons to take away from 2020 would be an understatement, particularly how the workplace impacts us as humans.
One of the biggest takeaways of this year has been the understanding just how much humans are capable of, and what our limits are. This time has provided everyone better insight into how people function differently, as well as their ability to adapt and transform when necessary.
Additionally, the importance of top-down leadership has been brought to the forefront. Now, CEOs and business leaders have realized how essential it is to be transparent and offer a human-centric approach.
Leaders have also been challenged with the new task of keeping their employees engaged as they isolate from home. This includes taking into account the various experiences each person is having during these unprecedented times, and guiding with empathy.
Companies have also come to realize the importance of nurturing an ecosystem of partners to address all issues that can occur in the workplace. This can include Chief Medical Officers, CHROs, and other various partners to create a truly connected workforce.
