This week Craig talks to Marc Burgauer, a coach in Agile and other workplace improvements , on the ways that work is changing in the wake of the pandemic. Many of us have transitioned to working from home – in whole or in part – but even where this has been successful it has opened up various disparities in the world of work. Many jobs can’t be worked from home. Many people do not have home environments that allow them to easily work from there. Even the transition hasn’t always been smooth and various technologies and working practices have started to emerge to allow offices to operate in a decentralised way. The discussion asks if this can be done only in a way that suits the workplace or if it can be done in a way that fosters and maintains the social connections formed at work and puts workers at the heart of work instead of reducing us to utilitarian economic cogs that must be kept spinning at all times.
