Join us on 1 June for an inspiring public lecture and discussion with Dr. Laura M. Giurge from the London Business School on "Time and well-being in the future of work". Ongoing innovations such as ubiquitous communication technology, alternative work arrangements, and hyper-efficiency are revolutionizing our work experiences, making it easier to share information, collaborate with others, and achieve more with less effort. At the same time, it has become increasingly difficult to draw boundaries between work and other aspects of our life. On an individual level, working one extra hour one day might not seem hugely problematic, but when amplified across time, failure to disconnect from work carries enormous costs to individuals and society at large. In this talk, I will explore the unintended drivers of work connectivity and present solutions to mitigate them, to ensure that work innovations are assets rather than barriers for well-being and productivity. This event is part of the DSI spring lecture series "The Future of Work".
