EPISODE 1: RESKILLING REMOTELY, ROAD TO OPPORTUNITIES
The future of work is here. Are employers ready to keep up?
Digitalization promised a new era for working life, but the cultural transformation lagged – until COVID-19. Who are the real winners and losers? Many workers have made big wins from remote work such as savings on transport, better work-life balance, and more autonomy. And then there have been the less fortunate. Experiences diverge greatly depending on personal situations – such as space, childcare responsibilities, the nature of the job itself, and individual temperaments.
