The business response to COVID has seen that many employees are able to work (and manage) from the comforts of their home (or wherever) while those whose physical presence is required have no such option.
In this episode, JP, Mule, and our guests talk about the benefits and risks of working remotely; more specifically, the “Knowledge Workers” can work remotely, but the “Wrench Turners” still have to come to where the production happens.
Is there a risk of creating (or amplifying) a culture (work and social) that has defined classes; the elites and workers? How can those calling the shots understand and be empathetic with what is happening with those on the front line? What is the peril of such occurring, what are the signs, and how can it be avoided?
