Work-Life 3.0 (Trend 1 of 5)
The issues of work-life balance and "having it all" have always been hot topics, but never more than now. What's different now than 10 or 20 years ago?
Customization Nation (Trend 2 of 5)
We have seen this trend in consumer marketing for a long time (think: Build-A-Bear Workshop, personalized Nikes, over-the-top Starbucks orders) and now it is dominating the workplace.
Twesumes, Twinterviews & Tweferences (Trend 3 of 5)
A major trend in companies across the country is the decline of the resume and the rise of social media as a very serious hiring tool.
