“2020’s legacy will be one of immense disruption, but following disruption always comes the opportunity to refocus and reinvent,” said Dr. Chris Mullen, Ph.D., SPHR, SHRM-SCP, executive director, The Workforce Institute at UKG. “While the COVID-19 pandemic was unimaginable just a year ago, our 2020 predictions—anchored by themes of wellness, advocacy, and empowerment—now seem serendipitous. Organizations and their people are now doing things they once thought impossible, showing incredible resilience and creativity, presenting a small silver lining to a year we’d otherwise wish to forget. As we look ahead, workplaces everywhere will be presented with the opportunity to take the lessons learned from the last year to reimagine a better world of work for the future.”
