Research on the impact of a pandemic, war, and energy crisis on the work environment. What has changed since 2020 in the way we work?
The COVID-19 workplace not only increases physical but also social distance. In pre-pandemic times it was still pretty easy to find ways of sharing ideas or giving feedback within your organization, but today you may well be feeling a bit more inhibited. Because of the massive working from home, there is a risk you are not letting your voice be heard spontaneously. Informal coffee breaks are gone, making it more difficult to openly discuss decisions made by your manager or coworkers. So you prefer to keep quiet, even if you do not agree.
