COVID-19's Biggest Legacy: Remote Work and Its Implications for the US Post-Pandemic Labor Market

After nearly a year of primarily working from home, a growing share of organizations expect remote work to become the new normal for many of their workers. But within the shift to remote work, no one story fits all.

About the Webcast

After nearly a year of primarily working from home, a growing share of organizations expect remote work to become the new normal for many of their workers. But within the shift to remote work, no one story fits all. There are large variations in remote work rates across demographics, occupations, industries, and geographies that have become even more apparent during the pandemic. The rise of remote work will also have an important impact on economic activity and business operations. It will drive workers’ decisions about where they live and choose to spend their money. And it will have major implications for worker productivity and for how organizations hire, how they lead, and on their culture. 

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer these important questions:

  • How many workers will continue to work from home post-pandemic? And in which industries and occupations are workers least likely to return to the office? 
  • How does the ability to work from home differ across gender, race/ethnicity, age, education, and location? How does this affect existing racial and income gaps? 
  • What factors affect remote worker productivity? Can certain telework policies lead to optimal productivity levels? 
  • How will hiring practices change? Will hiring fully remote employees become commonplace post-pandemic? 
  • How will the rise of remote work impact company culture, job satisfaction, and employees’ quality of life? 

Who Should Attend:

Executives with strategic responsibilities, especially in HR, strategy, and finance
