The pandemic has triggered almost constant transition including how employers and employees get work done. From one day to the next, management, HR professionals and employees must cope with the onslaught of changes in order to navigate uncharted territory. These challenges require vigilance, collaboration and flexibility. The next phase for many is returning to the office. Bringing people back to the workplace, safely, is a top priority.
