Monocle and the Adecco Group Foundation (both HQ in Zurich) present this series of podcasts called 'The Way to Work'.
In this edition digital antropologist Rahaf Harfoush talks about human-centric tech, a much needed broader vision on information management, the use of Digital Twins and shifting organisational culture. Bruce Davidson, a colleague of Neil Usher at GoSpace AI, talks about allocating space in work environments and digital transformation. The values of office space, engagement and well-being are being reassessed. Bruce thinks we can't people to self-organize and we need AI to help. The third speaker is Chief Experience Officer John Mader who is negative about remote working and under-ambitious tech companies. Also, Linda Morey-Burrows of architecture firm MoreySmith tells her expierence with the disruptive pandemic influences on her customers. She still thinks an office will be needed post-pandemic, but it will be very different. More smaller, quiter and calmer rooms for doing online meetings will be required. The group sees technology as a tool to augment the workplace and a valueshift towards community. The digital antropologist thinks the 'horrible' open plan lay-outs will have to be adjusted to give the office new meaning reagrding a physical platform for communication.
