How will COVID-19 shape the future of work?

I am delighted to invite you to the second panel discussion of our COVID-19 Community of Practice (CoP), taking place on March 11th, from 12:00 to 13:00 Eastern time.

March 11th carries some deep significance, as it marks the 10th year memorial of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in 2011, and one year since the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

As you know, our CoP aims to serve as a space where we can exchange information, experiences and perspectives on the pandemic. Our upcoming discussion will center around the question:

How will COVID-19 shape the future of work?

Specifically, we will explore how COVID-19 will impact the nature of work, relationships within the workforce, and the workplace.

Our speakers for this event are two specialists who were involved in the earthquake response in Japan and have valuable perspectives on the pandemic and its impact on us. These speakers are Jason Jarret, Hatch’s very own Resilience Specialist, and Dr. Henry Tsang, an architect specializing in healthcare facilities. You will find below Jason and Henry’s bios.
