How we work has changed significantly in recent weeks as communities and companies adopt social distancing measures. Recent polling shows that roughly 90 percent of Americans are staying at home to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Beyond how work patterns have changed, the pandemic has also had a more chilling effect: job loss. U.S. Labor Department numbers show that more than 3 million people filed for unemployment benefits last week.
Kerri Miller talked with a management professor about how coronavirus is affecting the workplace; what it might mean for how we work in the future; and her new book, “Think Outside the Building: How Advanced Leaders Can Change the World One Smart Innovation at a Time.”
Rosabeth Moss Kanter co-founded the Advanced Leadership Initiative at Harvard University and holds the Ernest L. Arbuckle professorship at Harvard Business School, where she specializes in strategy, innovation, and leadership for change.
