Bruegel Annual Meetings, Day 2 - This panel will cover the changes the COVID-19 pandemic made to our workplaces, and what to expect in the near future.

September 2, 2021, 3:45 pm Academy Palace Public | On the Record Livestreamed Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

With the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines, countries are beginning to imagine a future in which workers’ and employers’ choices are not conditioned by the pandemic. The crisis hit everyone hard but also generated an opportunity. It has shown that workers with suitable jobs can efficiently work remotely, with no negative implications for their productivity or performance From a European Union policy perspective, there is a clear opportunity to build on the lesson from the pandemic and create the conditions for hybrid work models within the single market. European trade unions and business federations should grab that opportunity and start an EU dialogue between employers, employees and governments.

  • What will offices look like in 2025? Will on-site and remote workers efficiently work together?
  • What are the risks, the challenges that employers need to address?
  • Is there a role for public policy to unlock remote work potential while ensuring workers’ well-being?
  • What are the likely macro implications of enhanced workers’ geographical mobility?
