Employees and organizations have undergone a historic transformation of the work environment over the last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Productivity, employee engagement, and overall effectiveness have been challenged by remote work, shifts in collaboration behavior to purely digital channels, and a storm of new applications and systems that lack sufficient context and add friction to the digital employee experience.
