Knoetic Curations: The New Normal

The "New Normal” of work, and our broader world in the coming 10 years.

One of the things we loved about founding Knoetic was getting to work with Chief People Officers who think as both culture builders and business leaders.

So today, Knoetic's Curated Collection takes a different tack. We want to encourage you to think about “The New Normal” of work, and our broader world in the coming 10 years.

  • People analytics becomes even more important, as companies look to better measure employee data, productivity, engagement in a productive & collectively beneficial way.

  • Demand for business travel will permanently decrease.
