Krys Burnette
I think what we noticed is this shift in employee's relationship to work. If you're navigating this shift and you're recognizing that the traditional workplace and the traditional way of working from the past is no longer something that you want to ascribe to, I think folks are sort of realizing that they can opt out.

The pandemic has not only changed the definition of the workplace, but it has also fundamentally altered the meaning of work itself. It has shifted people’s priorities in terms of the values they hold dear in their life, and how they prioritize work in relation to them.
