However, over the past generation, pandemic outbreaks are occurring more frequently. One has to wonder if pandemics will become more commonplace. As we deal with COVID-19, historical playbooks have proven useful, yet new considerations have emerged. What does all this mean for business, the future of work, and the skills required to be successful in today’s modern workplace? Let’s talk about it…at a socially appropriate distance of course!
