The Future of Work is Now

The new year has brought some relief from a tumultuous era — and even cause for a little cautious optimism. Vaccination rates are up, schools are slowly reopening, and many employees are feeling comfortable returning to the office. Over the past year, we’ve learned new ways to innovate the ways we work and interact with one another. And in the coming months, we’ll see business leaders apply those lessons to create stronger and more adaptable organizations.

It’s no secret that the American workplace has been changed by the pandemic. Our feature story, New Trends in the Post-Pandemic Workplace" (Page 10), discusses this shift, exploring how many organizations have adopted a more flexible, people-centric approach to work. Of course, the pandemic also exposed the inherent weaknesses in supply chains worldwide. In Unmasking Supply Chain Vulnerabilities (Page 14), we examine lessons learned, and what businesses can do to mitigate future risks. Finally, a new administration coupled with federal regulations bring with them some different considerations for business leaders, which we explore in our business intelligence piece The Potential Impacts of a New Political Administration.
