Our book starts when the pandemic first impacted the world of work in early 2020. We take a look at how management culture adapted and the role of technology. We then focus on how the changes affected us as individuals and what it will mean for our homes, communities and planet. The final part of the book looks at the role policy makers can play and how we can emerge from the crisis to create a brighter future.
