Evolution of the working environment: An international perspective

Start & End Date : 
Tuesday, June 28, 2022


14.00 - 15.30

The pandemic has provided an opportunity to reimagine the working environment as we embrace flexible and remote working. How much has the work environment really evolved since the pandemic?  And how sustainable is this evolution?  What has been the impact on recruitment and retention in this evolving landscape?  We hear from international partners about the realities of changing working environments and practices at their institutions and consider what lessons we can learn from their experiences.
