Some rules and best practices are starting to change.
 
Greetings, Ninja!

What strange times we live in. And we're not even talking about politics!

Multitasking? It's actually NOT the key to productivity. That mandatory anti-harassment training that everyone dreads? With the right approach, it can be a fun bonding experience.

And the next time you find yourself muttering the words "I need a drink" while you unjam the printer for the sixth time in a row, we recommend you go pour yourself one!

Times have really changed—so let's explore them together.

Cheers!
