About The Event
We have experienced an unprecedented period during the Covid-19 pandemic. Wide and rapid adoption of remote working is one critical impact of this phenomenon.
Although we do not know when society will truly go back to “normal,” it is important for leaders to think about the future of the workplace. Should we continue remote working or totally abandon it and return to the “normal” office work style? What are the positives and negatives of remote working? How can we re-imagine the workplace, building upon the experiences of remote working?
In this session, Katsuhiko Yoshikawa, Associate Professor at Shizenkan University, brings his research, teaching, and management of people and organization consulting experience together to discuss these questions, adopting theories and findings from organizational behavior research. The discussion will help you envision how you may rearrange your team and workplace, considering work performance, psychological engagement, and employee welfare.
