How to transform the workforce and workplace to build resilience
Work has been in a state of flux for years, with its transformation being driven by powerful forces of disruption: demographic shifts, the changing nature of careers, and relentless advances in technology. When the global COVID-19 pandemic struck, it pushed the pace of change into overdrive, heightening anxieties about how to prepare for the future of work.
This includes the future of the workplace itself. In early 2020, many organizational leaders wouldn’t have approved a year-long work-from-home experiment for their desk workers; there are too many unknowns and too many stigmas around working from home. The pandemic has forced everyone to rethink our workplaces in the broadest sense. If the future of work is hybrid, what does that really look like?
Kathy Woods, a partner and the National Workforce Transformation leader, and Lisa MacVicar, a senior manager in National Real Estate Advisory, speak about the importance of workforce and workplace resilience and the type of commitment it requires from an organization.
