Blurring the lines between home & work

Through the D.Cast series we will be bringing you insights, stories and reflections from our community.

Blurring the Lines 

We live in a time of hyper connectivity where digital mobility is making it difficult to separate personal life from work life. The impact of Covid-19 and the blanketed ‘working from home’ scenario, has revealed and elevated many challenges that have been simmering in the background for some time.

What will we take away from this ‘real life experiment’, and how can we expect our social environments to support and adapt to any behavioural changes as we move forward
