The Future of Work podcast
In this joint podcast with Rebecca Cassells, Sharon Parker explores how the ‘working from home’ phenomenon has helped bolster Australia’s economy and how people can work most effectively from home to support their mental health.
Working from home: blessing or curse? Professor Sharon Parker has the answers (yes, there’s more than one).
Pyjamas, commuting from bed to your desk just minutes after waking up, no boss looking over your shoulder–working from home sounds like a dream. But what about the pressures from family, bad technology, and lack of support from colleagues? Professor Sharon Parker, from the Future of Work Institute at Curtin University, and Laureate from the Australian Research Council, discusses the Australian workforce’s adjustment to isolated work. Listen to her and host Ginger Gorman as they theorise about the future of the Australian workforce.
