Bell Curve graph with people on conference calls in the background To borrow from a previous post , the future of work  arrived yesterday, long before many organizations were prepared to evolve into it. Somehow, only three months after the global COVID-19 pandemic took hold, that unexpected, early arrival of nearly universal remote work now feels far in the rearview mirror.
