The coronavirus pandemic has upended the lives of people all across Seattle, and those who are fortunate enough to still be working are adjusting to a new normal. The home now serves as an office and, for some, their child’s daycare center or school. The way people work has also changed, with all in-person interactions replaced by video chats, messaging apps and email. HR teams are finding new ways to monitor and maintain employee morale, and business leaders are adjusting their targets or pivoting teams to adjust to this new reality.
It’s a stressful and lonely time for many, and things may get harder before they get better. Yet even as many of us struggle to navigate the uncertainty of it all, many more are finding ways to lift each other up.
