Handle with care: managing people in the post-virus workplace

WORKTECH Wednesday Briefing is a new addition to the Academy’s coverage during the pandemic. In our first video feature, Academy director Jeremy Myerson discusses the potential impact of coronavirus on experience, mental health and leadership at work

WORKTECH’s professional live conference series is now paused due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, we are committed to rescheduling our events around the world as soon as it is safe to do so, and to continuing to bring our global WORKTECH community the best knowledge and insights about the future of work and workplace.

We have instigated a weekly WORKTECH Wednesday Briefing as a new addition to our coverage to keep our 10,000-plus Academy members, WORKTECH attendees, speakers, partners and sponsors in the loop on the latest thinking and newest ideas.

In our first video briefing, London academic and Academy director Jeremy Myerson revisits WORKTECH Academy’s new report, The World of Work in 2020, published in early January, to discuss how the key trends around people for this year will now play out given the global disruption to established patterns of work.

What new experiences will be required to lure people back into the crowded workplace? How will attitudes to mental health at work change after a prolonged lockdown? And will leaders shift their approach amid a rapid rise in remote and flexible working?
