Recent years have brought fundamental changes in how we work, facilitated by significant technological innovation and accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. As flexible work arrangements become more widespread, this shift in the nature of work will become ingrained in the labor market across industries, institutions, and individual attitudes. Many companies have instituted hybrid work policies that combine in-person and remote work for employees following the pandemic experience, and some have already gone completely remote.
On October 10, the Brookings Center on Regulation and Markets, in partnership with the AI, Analytics, and Future of Work Initiative at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business, held an event on the future of remote work. The event featured a keynote speech from Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, chief executive officer of the hybrid work consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts and author of Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams. A panel of experts from academia and industry followed his remarks to discuss the newest trends in remote work. This event was a part of the Center’s series on “Reimagining Modern-day Markets and Regulations.”
