The way we work is changing. The trends of globalization and digitalization have radically impacted the world of work, a shift which has been accelerated by COVID-19.
Working arrangements have changed drastically amid the pandemic and workplaces are restructuring. Remote working, which has become the norm, has far-reaching implications for a global workforce, the physical workplace, workplace culture, and the relationship between employers and employees. Technological tools have bridged the geographical divide, creating a more flexible workforce, while employers now play a larger role in supporting the employee’s financial, physical, and mental well-being.
COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of workplace adaptability. How do digitalization and technological solutions impact the agility of workplaces? Given the prevalence of remote working, what is the future of the physical workplace? How do these developments influence workplace culture and employee engagement?
Join AmCham Singapore as we host a panel of experts to discuss digitalization and what the future of workplaces will look like.
