Are we “post-pandemic”? The epidemiological data say we are most definitely not past the pandemic. Yet, most of are already experiencing a “post pandemic” way of working. What does work after the pandemic look like?
A few weak signals to consider:
- The “Great Resignation” is making a demand for labor heat up: there are two kinds of companies… those that realize that they’re in a war for talent, and those that don’t. Check out what the first group is doing.
- Smaller, older labour force: Deaths will outstrip births by as early as 2025, according to new data
- A new way to segment the labour force: those that MUST go into the office, and those that don’t. The stress in the first group is rising.
- Have we really changed at all? We’re not sure if these shifts are permanent … yet.
