Does place still matter or is the future of work one where we work when and where we like, with traditional offices a thing of the past?
Join our hybrid-enabled event, where we will discuss the implications of different work patterns and explore what this means for employees, businesses and cities. This is a part of the ESRC 2022 Festival of Social Science, an annual, UK-wide, free celebration of social sciences.
Dr Matthew Davis and the panel will discuss these key questions amongst others:
- Does place still matter or is the future of work one where we work when and where we like, with traditional offices a thing of the past?
- What does this mean for cities and how might changing work patterns reshape our local places?
This event will include the dissemination of results from Matthew Davis' Adapting Offices project; a panel discussion with practitioners, council representatives and industry professionals; a Q&A session; and a networking lunch. Full programme to be sent to attendees ahead of the event.
Please note that you will be required to state whether your attendance is in person or via Zoom link when you register.
