At the beginning of the pandemic, work felt scary. Chaotic. Unplanned. But at lightning speed, Zoom evolved, Figma and Notion unfolded and we all adapted to a new way of working. Hierarchies flattened as teams pulled together and individuals proved that they performed better when they were trusted to work independently. Our people are at the core of everything we do. Without our people, we can’t grow our businesses or build meaningful communities. Join us as we explore the future of our people at work.
We became nostalgic about office Christmas parties, but just like coins and banknotes, we didn’t really want them back. For the first time, work and life seemed truly balanced. But then 2022 came along, and Boris told us we could go back to our desks. But did we go back? Our working environments have changed for good that’s for certain. But how will we adapt and create connections? Perhaps in the Metaverse?
With all that time to think, to process and bake banana breads, we’ve rethought the way we want to live and work. We feel the pressures of the economy and society’s natural tendency to work even harder and throw more hours into work. But all that time inside has left us wanting our lives back. Can we still be as productive just working four days? Should we step out of our comfort zones? Join us as we explore our purpose.
