A new feature in Big Sur, and also iOS 14, is the ability to assign Reminders items to a person in a shared list. So if you share a list with people on your team at work, you can then add items and assign them to individuals that are sharing that list. Or, the people on the list can assign them to themselves, so people can "take on" a task.
