Counter Productive

“The productivity plunge is perplexing, because productivity took off to levels not seen in decades when the coronavirus pandemic forced an overnight switch to remote work, leading some economists to suggest that the pandemic might spark longer-term growth. It also raises new questions about the shift to hybrid schedules and remote work, as employees have made the case that flexibility helped them work more efficiently. And it comes at a time when ‘quiet quitting’ – doing only what’s expected and no more – is resonating, especially with younger workers.” U.S. workers have gotten way less productive. No one is sure why.
