“The only constant in life is change,” the Greek philosopher Heraclitus once postulated some 2,500 years ago.
With constant change comes the need to constantly adapt—and oh, how things are changing.
You’ve probably already encountered these staggering stats somewhere. Possibly you’ve even experienced some of them yourself. But let’s set the stage together:
By 2025, global data creation is projected to grow to more than 180 zettabytes. For reference, one zettabyte is equal to a thousand exabytes, a billion terabytes, or a trillion gigabytes.
Seventy-nine percent of legal departments reported an increase in workload last year due to the pandemic, according to Thomson Reuters.
Naturally, all this data and work has to go somewhere—which means it has to fall on someone’s shoulders, in every organization. And that’s not without consequence; according to the WHO, working long hours is hazardous to our health (although most of us already knew that). In a time when employee turnover is through the roof, it’s more essential than ever to stem the tide of burnout on your team.
