Is it from your bedroom? Is it in the office? Is it from the carpool lane at your kid’s school? Everybody has a different answer to that question, which has made us rethink how we support the human experience in the workplace (whatever that workplace may look like that day).
After a global pandemic turned the world upside down, we had to transform and adapt with a new, more integrated work-life balance. We suddenly had more choice of where we live and how we manage to fit our work into our lives (as opposed to the other way around). This shift has allowed our brightest minds to shine from anywhere in the world and unlocked new levels of opportunity and diversity for businesses everywhere.
Parents now have the flexibility to be the professionals they want to be and the parents they need to be. New graduates have the ability to pursue the jobs of their dreams without having to uproot their lives and relationships. People have the freedom to live wherever they want, however they want and still connect with their peers as they work to make the world a better place.

The office for most went from a singular place to anywhere with an internet connection. Some of us stayed in place, others moved to places that were better fit for themselves and their families during uncertain times, and a few of us went on adventures and saw the world in ways we couldn’t when we were spending five days a week at the office.
