Rethinking Wellbeing in The Evolving Workplace: A Holistic Approach Involving Technology, Ergonomics, and Work Organization
The COVID-19 pandemic caused an abrupt shift in work systems in the US and across the globe, with a dramatic increase in the number of people working remotely from their homes. For many people, Work From Home (WFH) will continue to be an option, at least on a part-time basis. When employees’ homes become their workplaces, we need to rethink the design of these new flexible/hybrid office environments and how we can protect and promote health and wellbeing of the workforce. In this webinar, research scientist and office systems expert Michelle Robertson, Ph.D., CPE will review how the new hybrid work system (a mixture of in-office and remote work) changes the way work is experienced by individuals and the organization. She will discuss strategies that use a work systems perspective to promote worker wellbeing and performance to achieve the benefits of hybrid and telework arrangements. Robertson will discuss her telework research and provide valuable key recommendations to consider when managing the safety, well-being and performance of workers in these challenging times.
