The crumbling walls between professional and private life

Flexible and remote working are evolutions long in the making, which the Coronavirus pandemic has hugely accelerated. At the start of the pandemic in early 2020, our home and work worlds collided, and it became increasingly difficult for employees to separate their professional and private lives. Now, with employees gradually returning to the office, it is clear that things will not go back to the way they were. Remote and hybrid working has become standard practice in most industries and sectors, with most employees being allowed to work from home at least a few days every week. This flexibility has allowed employees to organise their private lives better, but it has also led to the slow erosion of the clear boundaries between work and free time.

During this webinar, an international panel of experts from both legal and HR backgrounds explore the differing trends arising from the crumbling walls between professional and private life across Europe and their real-life consequences. They also offer practical advice on how to mitigate the legal and reputational risks arising from these increasingly blurred boundaries.
