The Modern Office


While there are many benefits associated with remote work, there are certain tasks and activities that can't be easily replicated in a virtual environment. Team collaboration, brainstorming, and culture-building are better suited for in-person settings, where team members can work side-by-side and connect in real time. As organizations transition to hybrid work arrangements, business leaders and HR professionals will need to assess how and when in-person work will be conducted and what the expectations will be for managing job tasks and responsibilities in a hybrid environment. This course examines how the modern office has been reshaped and explores the activities best suited for in-person settings, and addresses topics such as employee health and safety and workspace design.
