Middle East Chapter - The Big Debate: Does Remote Work, Work? Wednesday, 17 March 2021 from 8:45 AM – 9:15 AM
A year of the biggest experiment in remote working surprised many that work could actually take place when people were dispersed. It also brought to the fore issues of mental wellbeing, inequality and lack of connections. Some enjoyed the flexibility and choice, while others missed a place to go to, to work. And hence, the big question being explored is – Does Remote Work work? What is the impact of a dispersed workforce on people, organisations as well as cities and neighborhoods? This session focuses remote work at these different scales and what the future might look like.
