Imagine you’d been told one year ago that the way you live, work and communicate with the people in your life would undergo an extraordinary change.
The emergence of the 2020 pandemic has caused rapid paradigm shifts especially in the ways of working, and the meaning of ‘normal’ continues to evolve.
For many, the traditional office has been relocated to living rooms, bedrooms and quiet makeshift spaces that could double as a workspace. Along with the changes in our working spaces, the way we communicate with each other has taken on a vastly different approach.
Our interactions have become more digitised, and maintaining a work-life balance requires ingenious efforts now that the divide between work and home may be a little less clear for most. Yet, these novel times and challenges present an opportunity for us to prosper in a world swiftly advancing on its path to progressive digitisation.
