Coronavirus has shone a spotlight on many of the inequalities that some people face in the workplace. On average, the wealthier you are the less likely you are to come into close contact with others, and people in cities in southern England are more likely to be able to work from home than those in the north – shielding them from the health risks posed by the pandemic.
Yet even before the virus hit the labour market was changing quickly. Automation means fewer workers will need to carry out manual activities and technology theoretically makes it easier for office-based workers to work from home.
At this event, our Senior Analyst Elena Magrini will discuss these issues further and present our latest research on Covid-19 and the future of work. She will be followed by Tony Dundon, a Visiting Professor with the Work and Equalities Institute, Alliance Manchester Business School, The University of Manchester.
The presentations will include a Q&A chaired by Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.
