“Attracting and keeping high-quality employees is not only about salary and benefits. Workplace safety is growing as a key concern.”

Glenn Baruck, The eDot Family of Companies

In this article by facilityexecutive.com, you can explore the numbers in more depth and get a better feeling for the pulse of the U.S. workforce when it comes to their most significant organizational safety concerns and how these concerns affect employee retention and loyalty.

“The great resignation continues and may be the source of your data leak. Prepare before your data walks out the door too!”

Glenn Baruck, DigiTek Security


As the pandemic continues, a historically high turnover rate in the US labor market has come with it.

How the pandemic changed what it means to look ‘professional’ at work

April 12th, 2021 Posted by Employment, Life and Culture, Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) 0 thoughts on “How the pandemic changed what it means to look ‘professional’ at work”

“The pandemic has changed the definition of work attire and seems to imply different meanings when it comes to the pressures felt by men and women.”

It’s been over a year since many of us were instructed to grab our office essentials and move to work from our homes.

That said, according to this article written by Kathleen Davis for FASTCOMAPANY, some data suggests that women are reacting differently from men to the new norms and feeling pressure to look professional despite the changes. This article and the latest episode of Davis and her colleague’s podcast go into depth on this interesting topic.
