The COVID-19 pandemic forced an unprecedented experiment that reshaped white-collar work and turned remote work into a kind of “new normal.” Now comes the hard part.
We were joined today by author, Peter Cappelli to discuss his new book, THE FUTURE OF THE OFFICE Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face.
Many employees want to continue this “new normal” and keep working remotely, and most at least want the ability to work occasionally from home. But for employers, the benefits of employees working from home, or hybrid approaches, are not so obvious. What should both groups do?
A prescient new book, The Future of the Office: Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face by Peter Cappelli lays out the facts to provide everyone involved with a vision of their futures. Cappelli unveils the surprising tradeoffs both employers and employees may have to accept to get what they want.
Peter Cappelli is the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the Wharton School and director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources. He writes a monthly column on workforce issues for Human Resource Executive Online and is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review.
