DTI Community Roundtables: COVID-19 and the Transformation of Work

COVID-19 has fundamentally altered how we work and even how we understand the jobs that we do.
A lot has been discussed in terms of emergency responses and crisis management, but it is now clear that in many respects the old days are gone for good, and it is time to make decisions for the long term.

As we move forward, Members are looking to find the balance between what worked before, what has been learnt during the crisis, and what will need to happen to succeed in the future. Join us for an open discussion of the COVID crisis and its long-term impact on ‘the future of work’, and hear directly about the approaches and thinking of your EBU peers.

Speakers include Heaton Dyer (CBC - Canada), Sarah Fahlander (SVT - Sweden), and Andy Quested (BBC - UK) with more to be announced soon, leaving plenty of room for discussion with participants. 

Issues for discussion include:

  • How to organize for a permanently distributed workforce?
  • What are the impacts on people, infrastructure, technology or processes?
  • How do we measure the ‘success’ of WFH?
  • What are Members thinking about the reallocation of resources and infrastructure investment?

The DTI Community Roundtables are a new series of online gatherings in which EBU Members meet and discuss topical issues linked to digital transformation. Each session will include short presentations from two or three invited speakers and an open discussion between all participants.

Agenda will be published soon.
