For more than a year, we’ve had COVID-19 as our companion, friend, enemy and accomplice in our everyday routines. We’ve already suffered several waves, went through a few new variants and there are certainly more to come. As the pandemic is a present and possible future, we can expect anything to happen, and hope for good news.
The Covid-19 shock is bad news for the advanced capitalist economies. It is even worse news for some of the workers there: not only is their job suspended in the best of cases, recessions are usually strongly associated with increased automation, especially of routine jobs.
Nowadays, we hardly ever remember when the pandemic really started, and we’re so used to it that almost hurts. Yet desperate in the beginning, we soon came to a solution able to fight COVID-19 and provide long-term protection. And that’s when the COVID-19 vaccines came in to help.
The world is facing COVID-19, the most deadly pandemic we could hardly imagine. Many countries are slowly reopening business and things are looking quite promising. People are tired of restrictions and SARS-coV-2 is pushing their limits to the extreme.The home office challenge and the online education problems are about to go in history. However, as we take in fresh air, new waves are already hitting.
Responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the tone and tenor of everyday life by touching many aspects of global society, including environmental health. Social distancing measures, including cuts to air travel and restrictions to social gatherings, have already impacted the environment on a global scale.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic made us experts on the issue, we all know it’s a respiratory disease which affects the lungs. Though that's 100 % true, in the long-term it doesn’t seem to be completely right.
We are all facing tough times and situations with a pandemic in our daily life. Some of us got travels canceled, others got their plans interrupted, most of the people won't even go out of their homes.
Predicting the future of work is always tricky, and the COVID-19 pandemic has made any type of prognosis even more difficult. While it’s anyone’s guess what’s next, some constants remain: organizational performance will always be important, and it is dependent on employees.
