When we were first thrust into the pandemic and many business owners, CEO’s and sales managers needed to learn 𝐐𝐔𝐈𝐂𝐊𝐋𝐘 how to navigate a very scary place without any guidance or training.
Soon later many people were furloughed without warning, companies shut down and the lucky ones were able to pivot into the online space with the quick thinking of adopting a tech stack and new ways to connect with their buyers or deliver goods and services.
Companies like 𝐏𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐱 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐭 & 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐮𝐜𝐤𝐬 used Instacart and door dash to be able to pivot and keep up with the demand for their loyal customers with online ordering and delivery right to your front door…(Thanks to the pizza restaurant owners for that concept that we all took for granted all these years)
But now that we are embracing another corner of the pandemic, going back into the workplace, we are also in the middle of what LinkedIn is calling “The Great Reshuffle”. Employees are not only rethinking how they work but also why they work.
The pandemic has catapulted the workforce into situations where they could decide how they wanted to earn income and take a risk to make a change that perhaps they’ve always wanted to make but felt the risk too large to try without getting caught.
#Thegreatreshuffle has given employees the opportunity to explore new jobs and roles, where they have moved within the company or changed jobs completely.
Now that we are crossing yet another circle around a variant, online business owners and team members are going back into the workplace either voluntarily or as a hybrid opportunity in order to get back to “normal” (Whatever that is)
With this stage of The Great Reshuffle, we need to keep in mind how to help transition our teams and ourselves out of the work from home environment and back into the workplace with ease.
