2021 has been another tough year for may of us – Santa included. Delays in global delivery chains and labor shortages have added economic pressures that he was simply not prepared for.
But luckily, there are always ways to make money online if you are motivated…
This comic is based on an actual real-life experience.
Ok, well, it wasn’t EXACTLY like this, but it sure felt like it at the time. There was a workshop to select the product features of a new piece of software with so many different areas of the business involved that the process got nowhere. Everyone wanted everything and it felt like we were doing what the guy in this comic is doing – a totally random selection of features.
By the way – the product also never ended up getting made (what a surprise!).
As we begin to exit the COVID lockdown stages worldwide, many companies are hoping to help their staff once again embrace the idea of wanting to return to the office.
But a quick scan of recent articles online show that there is a massive amount of resistance to this, from the employees.
The pandemic has shown us all, in no uncertain terms, that many jobs can be effectively completed from a home working environment. But companies seem to be reluctant to admit this and even whilst spouting their belief that a “new normal” is required for how we perform our jobs, they are also extremely keen to return to safety of the way things were.
Hopefully companies will realise that ‘Productivity does not equal Place’ and give us all varied options for how we do our work, from now and into the future.
PS: ZOOM fatigue is a real thing and I am sick of saying “You are on mute” to others…
