Workplace Dynamics

Once in a generation (if that), we have the opportunity to reimagine how we work. In the 1800s, the Industrial Revolution moved many in Europe and the US from fields to factories. In the 1940s, World War 2 brought women into the workforce (if not the C-suite) at unprecedented rates. In the 1990s, the explosion of PCs and email drove a rapid increase in productivity and the speed of decision-making, ushering in the digital age as we know it today. And, in 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic drove employees out of offices to work from home. Thanks to the development and wide distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, 2021 presents another such opportunity.

The return to the workplace is a chance to create a new, more effective operating model that works for companies and people navigating a world of increasing uncertainty. There is, however, one big catch: employers must confront the broadening disconnect between how they and their employees see the future.… Recent surveys found that 26% of workers in the US are already preparing to look for new employment opportunities and 40% of workers globally are considering leaving their current employers by the end of the year.

Communicating that some magical finish line is just around the corner isn’t going to eliminate the disconnect that some employees feel between themselves and their employers — it will simply make it deeper.
