New Gender Gaps in the Hybrid Workplace? w. Liam Martin & Emelie Fågelstedt
Studies show that more women than men have asked for more flexibility to work remotely post-Covid-19. And if their managers are not fully up to speed to handle employees working remote, then the women working remote will easily be forgotten, if they are not as visible in the office spaces. They miss out on the reflections after the meeting at the coffee machine and the casual small talk at the working desks, and because of that, they can potentially also miss out on promotions and new career opportunities, that will be granted to the visible co-worker in the office instead.
So, what can women and other people who want to work more remotely do to make themselves more visible? And is it even their responsibility, or rather their manager’s, to make sure that everyone gets the same opportunities – regardless of whether they are working in the office or at the remote home office?
In this episode of WORK 3.0 our guests, Liam Martin & Emelie Fågelstedt, will discuss what the future workplace will look like to embrace all kinds of employees and whether the hybrid workplace is actually a good idea if we won't create new gender gaps.
Guests: Liam Martin, founder of Time Doctor.com and Staff.com, and co-author of the book: Running Remote, and Emelie Fågelstedt, Digital Communications Specialist and Co-founder of Swedish Nomads.
