WA Central Metro Online Forum
The COVID-19 global pandemic has forced the adoption of new ways of working, with organisations having to reimagine how and where work is done, often with very little choice for those involved.
The focus now as COVID-19 restrictions start to ease around Australia, is to better understand the conditions that lead to thriving in this new world of work and how to design remote work to protect and enhance worker wellbeing and productivity.
While we are being inundated about the benefits of flexible working and working from home, very little is known about exactly what is working and why.
To help answer these questions, join us for this online forum to hear from ARC Laureate Fellow Sharon Parker, who will share some preliminary insights from the Centres ‘Thrive at Work at Home’ study (Authors: Caroline Knight, Anita Keller, Sharon Parker).
The study aims to better understand the factors that influence employees wellbeing and productivity during the pandemic. Professor Parker will also share practical tips and tricks on how to maximise the benefits of flexible work as well as how to minimise the downsides, and will discuss important research questions for the future.
This forum is suitable for:
All HR professionals and practitioners.
Speaker: Professor Sharon Parker, ARC Lauraete Fellow, Curtin University
