The Art and Practice of Creating the Hybrid Workplace
Kogan Page, 2022
Work, workers and workplaces are all changing in new ways, so companies must change, too.
A technological revolution precipitated radical change in how people work, and the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated it. The very concept of work has changed significantly, and companies must adapt if they hope to compete and succeed.

Everyone in the workplace, especially corporate leaders and human resource officials, will find their research, insights and proposals illuminating.
