overview: During the last several months, the coronavirus pandemic has shaken up the business world and the employment status of millions of Americans. Even those who kept their jobs are now working under markedly different circumstances. Leaders from global staffing firm Randstad noted that digital and organizational transformation will shape the labor market in 2021, in addition to the efforts made toward economic recovery.
While the recovery seems to be in progress, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a net job loss in December for the first time since May when the numbers began improving after a precipitous fall in April. The recovery is also marked by an uneven experience across race and gender lines during the pandemic that will almost certainly affect the labor market for years to come.
