How Work May Change Post-COVID-19

Professor Nancy Rothbard called into Wharton Business Daily [a morning show airing live from the Wharton School] to talk to host Dan Loney about the ways some employees are working from home, and how it could shift how we work together after COVID-19 pandemic has subsided.

Interview highlights:
  1. Some people are "segments" and some are "integrators" when it comes to drawing the line between work and home.
  2. Working from home now is not the same as working from home before the spread of COVID-19.
  3. Technology has the ability to connect us, but it can also divide us.
  4. Setting clear expectations is the key to ensuring employees stay product while working from home.
  5. Business leaders should think carefully about how work will change after the pandemic has subsided.
