This series will examine how U.S. employment practices, policies, patterns, and people’s behavior may change in the coming months. Each chapter of this series will delve into a specific observation or trend starting with this week’s focus: PPP Ends, Unemployment Rises.

TRU Tips

“The true fall in GDP [from COVID-19], economic historians will debate for years. It’s not just the people not working. What’s the efficiency of the people who are working?” Kenneth Rogoff

TOP 3 Ways To Stay Efficient When Work Gets Slow
  • Focus more on demonstrable short-term goals (no one can predict long-term right now).
  • Stay visible, make sure your planning, execution and results are well documented and in shareable, digestible deliverables so supervisors can witness your thoughtfulness.
  • Work anaerobically: produce sprints of results, then rest, then sprint again.
