23. Finding Your Zen: Pandemic Work Life Balance and Beyond

The new normal has included employees saving on a tank of gas and the cost of lunch, while companies are saving on previous employee expenses, including gym memberships and Metro bus passes. 

For some employees however, having an office at home has brought up new challenges, including working beyond the 9-5 timeframe. Many have found it difficult to find balance during COVID.
