Not so long ago, the hot topic was how to maintain work/life balance, and how to keep our work life from excessively intruding on personal life.
Today, however, with many people working remotely everything is blurred. For example, Zoom video conferencing (usually reserved for work conferences) is now being used for private socialization in addition to our standard work communications. Quarantining measures have left millions with no way to socialize or communicate other than remotely, which is forcing people to get creative. They are now using tech in ways they wouldn't have before in order to stay connected.
Another obstacle people are forced to overcome is how to keep up day to day business when it comes to transactions and paperwork. With everyone being remote, it is no longer an option to sign with paper and pen. This has lead search engines to show a dramatic 100% increase in the search term “eSignatures” as people begin to adapt to this new reality.
