The pandemic has transformed how, where, when and even why we work. It accelerated workplace redesign as offices closed, entire industries were upended, and the emergence of never before seen levels of remote work It also raised the bar for reinvigorating strategic conversations on vision, mission, purpose, and values.
As COVID-19 shifts to an endemic state, and with the Great Attrition, rising wages, and artificial intelligence (AI) accelerating the velocity of change, unprecedented accommodations by employers have become necessary. Workers are empowered with options rarely seen before.
While some leaders are demanding a return to work based on pre-pandemic norms, others see that companies and boards who figure out how to best navigate the needs of their employees in performing their jobs will likely be winners in the future. Boards everywhere are negotiating these complex issues as their oversight role in human capital management continues to grow.
