‘Professor Lynda Gratton: “I’ve seen a lot of fads come and go – I hope this won’t be one”, People Management by Eleanor Whitehouse.

In order to maintain the ways of working cultivated over this past year, leaders must focus on productivity and performance. For HR, this means being intentional about the design of work – think about people’s tasks and workflows, and how the use of time and space helps drive both focus and collaboration.
