The hybrid world has upended traditional norms around the role of the office. Author Julia Hobsbawm joins the Talent Angle to discuss how talent management leaders can apply the insights from her book, “The Nowhere Office: Reinventing Work and the Workplace of the Future,” to take advantage of the emerging opportunities created by hybrid ways of working. Hobsbawm argues we are in a new era of work — marked by unclear boundaries and changing attitudes — and she shares advice on what organizations should do as they continue to shape the role of the office in this new era. She looks to the past at how earlier innovations in knowledge work changed offices and to the future at how physical spaces will support employees in sustained performance.
