With all the changes that have taken place in the workplace over the last few years, it is obvious that things will never go “back to normal” – instead, we are living the New Normal. Cost-cutting measures that got us through the economic recession will stay in place. Companies will be slow to replace full-time staff, keep finances pared back, expect more, faster, and continue to hold us accountable. The days of the past are just that…past. So, we have to learn to live and thrive in the New Normal.
