PEOPLE ARE EXHAUSTED BY CHANGE. That exhaustion is visible politically, but the causes lie in the societal changes that lead to political instability.

#5 Story of the Year 2017

Nine Shift

TELECOMMUTING, THE SILENT REVOLUTION, KEEPS GROWING. Over 40% of workers now telecommute at least part time. Telecommuting has doubled in the last ten years. Working from home (wherever you choose 'home' to be) is changing the workplace culture, increasing productivity, allowing organizations to hire specialists, and boosts employee morale, health, mental health, and greater personal leisure time. No one is predicting a plateau, much less a decline, in the growth of telecommuting. .
