Imagining a Post-COVID Work WOrld


A Fully-Remote or Hybrid Work Environment

We've proven that remote work is possible. Couple that with the economic advantages of remote work such as reduced need for office space and supplies, it's likely that this is a very real future for many of us. That is, working remotely from home at least some of the time.

A New Found Need to Build Culture Intentionally

Before COVID, we all just kind of showed up to work and culture naturally occurred. Some companies were better at curating cultural experiences and team bonding experiences. However, for most of us, the important things were that we were working together in the same space, talking, bonding, lunching, learning about each other's families. Proximity just made that possible. However, without that proximity, workplaces now have to intentionally facilitate those relationships and team bonds.

Considering "Adjustment Disorder"

A Re-imagined Economy

This is a bit of a tall order, but we watched our economy as COVID brought it to it's knees, and so many of us felt the crushing effects of that. Many of us lost our primary sources of income. Businesses went under. Massive legislation was passed. So, the question becomes, how do we make our economy resistant to these unforeseen, catastrophic anomolies? How do we prevent this from happening in the future, when another virus hits or a catastrophic meteorological event or a visit from outerspace even?
