The fourth industrial revolution is upon us and the digital transformation of businesses has gone into overdrive courtesy of the current Coronavirus pandemic. The widespread adoption of home working and the recent social upheaval has forced a change in how businesses look at their places, spaces and working practices. The social distancing policies of the COVID-19 pandemic represent a global trial run of what may become a new normal. As we adjusted to home isolation, technology became our sole platform for community and collaboration. Using their latest Global Study on the Future Of Work as a backdrop, Verizon Media will discuss the impact the virus has had and how these digital environments are now changing the ways we look at civic, social, and professional engagement forever.
