Adapting to Hybrid Work | Nicholas Bloom & Adam O'Neil

After a mass experiment in working from home over the past two years, companies are embarking on a new chapter of hybrid work. Teams are once again connecting at the office, turning virtual “water-cooler” chats into in-person conversations. But there are new stressors and uncertainties, like striking a sustainable balance between valuable face-to-face interactions and the flexibility of working from home. So how do we design a hybrid work experience optimized for our teams and our goals that also honors our individual wellbeing and needs?

In this episode, Kendall Kazor of Google’s People Development Team speaks to Dr. Nicholas Bloom, a professor of economics at Stanford and a leading global expert on remote and hybrid work. He provides the latest research on the future of work, and how to maximize our productivity while maintaining team cohesion and wellbeing in the hybrid environment. Clinical sports psychologist Dr. Adam O’Neil joins Bloom in the conversation, offering insight on how we can pair empathy and compassion to successfully navigate this transition.
