COVID-19 has changed much of how we live. For many of us, it’s also changed how and from where we work. What have been the effects of working from home on businesses and employees? Now, as many places re-open, will those who had been working from home continue to do so? Will they want to? Will companies be willing to accommodate them? How will working from home affect productivity and people’s sense of isolation? This week on EconoFact Chats, Nicholas Bloom of Stanford University joins Michael Klein to discuss the far-reaching implications of working from home.
Nick is Professor of Economics at Stanford University and Co-Director of the Productivity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship program at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
