The COVID-19 crisis has thrown light on both the positive and negative aspects of home and remote working. On the one hand workers have shown great resilience and resourcefulness in adapting to the challenges, demonstrating their commitment in the industries and sectors where it has been possible to do so. Indeed, as technology increasingly enables remote working, some employers are now considering a longer or even permanent shift to homeworking.
But is homeworking, and new forms of remote employment, the great panacea that some now think it is? And, if so, how can it be sustainable? Ongoing research at the Work & Equalities Institute at Alliance Manchester Business School suggests that remote working can be stressful, lead to greater work precarity and casualisation, and be fraught with ethical and equity challenges for HR professionals.
At this webinar Professor Tony Dundon from Kemmy Business School and Alliance Manchester Business School will be joined by Jonny Gifford, Senior Advisor for Organisational Behaviour at the CIPD, and Natasha Owusu, Policy & Campaigns Support Officer for Equalities at the TUC, to debate this most pressing issue of our time.
