New realities for the modern workplace

June 2021

The workplace of today and the immediate future is unlike any before. The pandemic revealed profound changes in the success of virtual work and expectations around productivity. Companies are also grappling with pressure to ramp up their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, aspects of which have come into relief as remote work has affected workforce segments and demographic groups inconsistently. Most companies are still in the early stages of measuring and rewarding successful DEI efforts.
