“New work” has become one of the latest buzzwords on everyone’s lips. Lockdowns in response to the coronavirus pandemic have pushed the issue up the agenda of many decision makers. Many businesses have seen radical changes as the result of digitalization, working from home and more flexible work arrangements. But how will the way we work develop in the future?
What are the principles that business leaders should pay attention to? Join our on demand event now. Among the prominent guests will be Mireia Aguilera, Head of Partnerships at Google Glass, and Raphael Gielgen, Future of Work Trendscout at Vitra.
The events of recent months have starkly highlighted the importance of digitalization and staying connected throughout the entire economy. Countless businesses were able to quickly put the conditions in place for their staff to work at any place and, in some cases, any time.
Virtual meetings, mobile work and the flexibility that come with these changes are increasingly becoming part of the “new normal”. Despite this, many decision makers are still faced with major challenges in terms of designing workplaces and developing a “new work” philosophy for their companies.

He visits more than 100 companies a year. Whilst traveling around the globe, the whole world is his laboratory and the future his research area. He meets protagonists from the near and distant future. His experiences are shown in his »Panorama« – a map for trends and patterns of a new world full of hackers and makers.
