How has the pandemic changed your attitude toward work? Derek Thompson wrote for The Atlantic, “…the basic terms of employment are undergoing a Great Reset. The pandemic thrust many families into a homebound lifestyle reminiscent of the 19th-century agrarian economy—but this time with screens galore and online delivery.” Thompson, who writes about economics and technology, says that the pandemic was a crisis of the magnitude that it will affect the American economy significantly, on the level of a world war.

The Benziger Thinking Styles Assessment report shows the natural preference of the individual, and the way in which a person’s tendencies have been adapted or diverted in response to the demands of the environment.

If your values about your work life balance changed due to Covid-19, you are part of the Great Reset.
