Seamless integration between online and offline channels is the holy grail of brick-and-click
retailing. But as with any worthy quest, a map is needed to point the way toward the
elusive prize. "There are people saying the process needs to be totally seamless, where
customers can do anything in all mediums, but that's not as viable as a selective
approach," Boston Consulting Group e-commerce manager James Vogtle told the E-Commerce
Times.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
