The pandemic has altered nearly every aspect of our society, including how we perceive the workplace.
From career paths, to work setting, how we work has forever been transformed by the events of the past 17 months.
Seeing such drastic changes to the world has caused an awakening, reminding people that life is short to work a job that may not offer the pay or arrangements one truly desires.
For instance, one of the big trends to emerge from recent months has been the “Great Resignation” concept. The pandemic has forced many people to reevaluate how they feel about their current job, and maybe even quit to find a more suitable position.
The core reason people work is to make a living that will allow them to have a comfortable and happy home life. However, it’s very easy to fall in line with a routine that may not necessarily be nurturing their personal life.
One of the biggest changes to derive from the pandemic is actually how we work. Prior to the mass shut down, remote working was still seen as an rare option reserved for only high-paid white collar workers.
However, we know now that isn’t the case. Remote working is easily accessible for many professionals now, and while it isn’t always the ideal option, it can be incorporated to build on hybrid working models.
