With the age of digitalization, where technology is so engrained in our personal and professionals lines, where life integration is the new norm, where remote work is surging and where people are expected to be connected constantly, we need to find the right balance between the use of technology, the design of more engaging and inclusive cultures, and the importance of nurturing human interactions.
