Man Covered in Sticky Notes
How Will Pandemic Fatigue Impact Recruiting
When the pandemic began, society experienced a lockdown with certain segments adapting to an indefinite work from home state. Some workforces and specialized industries were probably shocked at how much could be accomplished at home, with workers "mentally sprinting" into the spring months of 2020.


Virtual Picket Lines and Brand Shaming Extend Far Beyond the Workplace
With many companies opting for a remote approach to work, fleets of employees have had to adapt, seeking out new mediums for communication. Social media has become the new digital tool for employees to talk and share their gripes. Office gossip has moved from the water cooler to public forums like Twitter and Facebook.

Vacationers, airlines, and hotels are eager to return to pre-COVID levels of travel and jump-start the economy. Rapid testing could be the key, but its implementation proves to be a challenging hurdle that could take several months to refine.
