Several workforce trends that had emerged before the pandemic have exponentially accelerated over the past 12 months, including the mass adoption of remote working by previously office-bound employees. As vaccine distribution rolls out around the world and we edge toward the eventual end of social-distancing protocols, our goal is to paint a picture of what employers can prepare for in both the coming year and the long term.
We come from two different but related perspectives in the world of work. Bert is the CEO of MRINetwork, an organization of independent search and staffing firms with 300 offices around the world. Sasha is the president of CareerBuilder, a global HR technology leader and the fastest-growing job site. Each of our companies regularly conducts its own employment research, and we closely monitor relevant research from other organizations.
