So we are moving to new language. 

We said "search for," now we say "Google it." We are using "hybrid workforce" regularly. 

We went from flexible hours to flexitime to a shortened word of flextime. Many organizations established core hours of 9am to 3pm. A trend was a move to core hours of 10am to 2pm.  

Will we soon see recruitment ads with flexplace- meaning the job can be done wherever you wish? Will there be core places? Maybe core places with core time? Should you establish a cool co-working environment or several around the geographic area --places for your employees to gather and work- multiple "watercoolers" to encourage chatter and meetups? Imagine the conversations and innovations depending on who is in the space that day. You can do more than plain old offices or cube farms to "reserve and report to." 

This is such a great time to show your culture and encourage interaction in a new way. Don't just shuffle the deck chairs - Seize this Opportunity! What do you think? #WFH #postcovidworkplace #HR #trust #leadership#liveyourvalues #futureofwork #employeeengagement #culture
