In March 2020, millions of us left the office and began a new way of working. Post covid, what happens next?

At this pivotal moment in the history of work, isn’t now the time to develop something better, something more meaningful and something more workable?

Julia Hobsbawm, chair of the Demos Workshift Commission and author of 'The Nowhere Office', describes the biggest shift in working for 100 years by addressing six key shifts from time and place to networks, wellbeing and management. Hobsbawm argues that many of the issues we now face can be understood as challenges we long delayed facing - how to be a human being and a worker being, how to balance home life and work life, and how to cope with the cascade of technological opportunities and threats.

Join Hobsbawm in conversation with Alan Lockey, Head of the RSA Future Work Centre and Associate Director, as she argues how and why it is possible to rise to the challenges of remote working, repurposing offices for more creative interaction, managing WFH teams and satisfying the demand for more purposeful work with greater work/life balance by redesigning not just the places we work but how we work.
