Meeting ID: 834 6384 9447; Passcode: 251630
Abstract: Over the course of 18 months, the ESRC Work after Lockdown research is looking at how lockdown-driven working from home is changing how people want to work in the future, as well as organisations’ responses and learning around this.
Focusing on the legal and public administration sectors, we are using mixed-methods to look at differences in employees’, line managers’, and leaders’ experiences in occupations that are primarily white collar, but which were also in large part office-based prior to lockdown. This seminar will reflect on our first wave of data collection, which looked at the most intense period of crisis-driven change within workplaces, and will engage with key findings around social interactions, mental health, and workforce pressures, as well as implications for the future direction of the research.
Dr Jane Parry is Principal Investigator on the Work after Lockdown project, and is Director for the Centre for Research on Work and Organisations at Southampton Business School. She has been working in applied policy research for the past 20 years, and has particular interests in inequalities, changing workplaces, the interconnections between paid and unpaid work, and digitised work. She has recently completed a project on policy internships and subsequent careers as a Parliamentary Academic Fellow.
