Due to the corona pandemic, work organization has been subject to dramatic change, and teleworking from home offices had to be suddenly implemented to keep businesses running. Mobile working, software-based collaboration, web-based meetings and new means of performance control were installed at a large scale. Have we suddenly reached the long-discussed digital future of work? Or is this only a temporary phase, and work life will return to what it was before the pandemic? Our speakers will outline the major changes in the organization of work caused by the pandemic in Japan and Germany. They will also discuss to what extent national regulations have been obstructing, shaping or supporting respective adjustments and assess to what extent the newly introduced workstyles can be expected to last.
This Web-Forum will be held in English, online (Zoom). Detailed information and registration on our website
