October 13: The Roaring 20s Holiday Party? Be Careful What You Wish For

Category:

There has never been a time when employees will look forward to their company holiday party more than fresh off a pandemic. Interestingly, there are a host of parallels between current global conditions and those prior to the Roaring 20s: the end of a pandemic, the proliferation of new technologies, a transport revolution, political polarization, emerging international rivalries, and a soaring stock market.
