The workplace is no longer a fixed location; its role is to support value creation.
This report is sponsored for leaders by Autodesk and written by senior tech industry analyst and TEDTM speaker Susan Etlinger. It examines the key shifts we are seeing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and other macroeconomic, industry, design, and technology trends; explores the role of the distributed workplace as an engine for growth; and includes insights from leaders across a range of industries and disciplines.
Read on and find out how:
COVID-19 didn’t create the distributed workplace—it accelerated it
This is an opportunity to reimagine the workplace as a dynamic engine for value creation rather than as a static place to house employees
Leaders need to pay attention to the social/cultural impacts of distributed work and find ways to promote cohesion and trust
And leaders need to clearly understand and support the activities that drive value within the company and foster those in the workplace
