Still, mist of Harold Jarche's observations in this post are on point. If you ever doubted you were a commodity, your experience during the pandemic probably changed that. "Now that more work is being done online, many people face global competition... Three things will differentiate professionals in such an economy — expertise, relationships, and innovation." After the pandemic, a lot of the in-person services will go back to being in-person. But I don't think people will forget how easily they could be replaced by an online service and how precarious even their secure jobs might be.
