The Home-Working Revolution and the Future of Business

Nicholas Bloom




Stanford Professor Nicholas Bloom is the world’s leading authority on the effects of home-working on productivity and happiness. He explores how the pandemic could change our working lives for the better.

The global pandemic is an unprecedented global tragedy, the significance of which will continue to resonate for years to come. But one silver-lining may be the normalisation of working from home – and the creation of a new hybrid pattern of home and office working that benefits our productivity, creativity and well-being.

Stanford Professor of Economics Nicholas Bloom is a globally-renowned expert on the impact of working from home and how to reap its benefits.

Contrary both to the commonly held prejudice that ‘remote working is shirking’ and the challenges of compulsory home-working during the pandemic, his experiments show that carefully designed home-working practices make organisations more, not less, productive.

As a large-scale adoption of home-working is sure to continue and accelerate through 2020 and beyond, Professor Bloom joins How To Academy to explore strategies for optimising our organisation and our individual working lives to embrace the possibilities of the future.

Whether you are looking for tips for coping with home-working during this crisis, or are a leader looking to lay foundations for growth in the post-COVID world, Professor Bloom’s talk is unmissable.

This talk takes place at 6:30pm British Summer Time.
