The New Future of Work
Thursday, August 20, 2020
10–11 a.m. Pacific
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
From physical distancing and face coverings, to a need for flexible schedules and remote work, what started as a response to a health crisis is turning into a new normal. The current pandemic is compelling American employers and employees to reconsider the way we work and live.
What’s next for the workplace once the pandemic is behind us? What aspects of work are so essential that they will revive once this crisis passes? And how do we help get millions of unemployed Americans back into this changing work environment and ensure they have the skills and capabilities to compete?
What is the new future of work?
