      Organized by CBS
      Discussion and debate informed by latest scientific evidence and current best practices in business:
      • What will post-pandemic digital workplaces look like?
      • How to take advantage of lessons learned during the pandemic?
      The pandemic has thrown into sharp light that people want to work in a different way, with individual flexibility being the keyword. Some want more remote work, some less, some want more face-to-face contact with colleagues and managers, some less, and everyone wants to be recognized and do something meaningful – life is short, we have been reminded! This panel will discuss these shifts and different business and science perspectives on what the post-pandemic workforce really wants and how to make hybrid workplaces work for everyone.
