Article | The manufacturing sector post-pandemic: Rethinking US workplace priorities to pursue short and long-term success

When covid-19 lockdowns became widespread in March 2020, manufacturing output dropped sharply.

A variety of pre-existing trends affecting organisations and workers have been accelerated by the historic crisis: digital transformation, remote work and automation, to name a few.

Recovery, Resilience and the Road Ahead: Rethinking US Workplace Priorities to Pursue Short- and Long-term Success

Waves of substantial disruption are the norm in business, not the exception. The challenges of 2020-21 have been unusual, but workers and organisations can never assume that stability will persist.

Digitalisation has accelerated; widespread working from home has left many workers eager for more; and the joint experience of navigating through immense disruption has profoundly affected workplace relations.
