Times are changing. Noise is everywhere. We are living through a cacophony of worried and helpful voices. We now are hungry for meaningful change. The workplace is now remote. The workplace has divided people into categories of “essentialness”. As such people as a workforce are changing their perspective on the labor market.
According to recently released statistics, four million people quit their jobs in the United States a few months back. Before there was a song “take this job and shove it”. It seems that song and sentiment has been amplified. People are even more so saying “thanks, but I won’t take that job”. There are options, supposedly. Many people don’t even want to go into a workplace anymore. They are perfectly comfortable working in pajamas in front of a camera.
There will be those who understand this shift and try to adjust standards. There will be those who completely miss the mark and try to hold onto the ways of yore. It will be a tug of war going forward. Buckle up!
