Web-Forum of Deutsches Institut für Japanstudien in co-operation with Taylor Wessing
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, work organisation has been subject to dramatic change, and teleworking from home offices had to be suddenly implemented to keep businesses running. Mobile working, software-based collaboration, web-based meetings and new means of performance control were installed at a large scale.
Have we suddenly reached the long-discussed digital future of work? Or is this only a temporary phase, with work life returning to what it was before the pandemic?
Our speakers will outline the major changes in the organisation of work caused by the pandemic in Japan and Germany. They will also discuss the degree to which national regulations have been obstructing, shaping or supporting respective adjustments and assess to what extent the newly introduced workstyles can be expected to last.
