The MIG aims to explore the implications of remote and hybrid work models that have been triggered by the pandemic. It will particularly focus on

  1. understanding the impact of new work models on productivity and
  2. their impact on organizational culture and social connectivity.

The topics will be validated by the participants during the first meeting; they may be adjusted due to the interest of the group. 

Findings will be shared via a White Paper aimed at the public to contribute to the development of New Work models.


Criteria for Participation

  • Open for members and non-members up to a maximum of 10 people (more than one person per company can attend)
