Punch the Clock

Good Morning. A quick one from me: Since my paper about the future of work and the workplace was published it's had some good media pickup: On Friday I appeared on the BBC's Today programme (it's here - the last five minutes so not too much scrolling to find I hope).

Then this morning in the Financial Times the management writer Andrew Hill cited the paper in a piece specifically looking at time and how punching the clock needs to be systematically re-evaluated: something I strenuously argue for in the paper.

The paper benefitted from the considerable wisdom of a number of wise owls, not least Professor Lynda Gratton, also quoted in the FT piece, Hilary Cottam, Martin Wolf, William Eccleshare, Dennis Owusu-Sem, Tom Adeyoola, Josh Greene, Stefan Stern...and Charles Handy.

Stefan and I are busy working on the podcast of The Nowhere Office - more soon.
The team at Demos  - CEO Polly Mackenzie and Rose Lasko-Skinner who heads up work and The Workshift Commission which I chair are busy planning ways to extend our understanding of what is happening in the workplace as we move to a post-pandemic mode.

I'm now working on extending the paper into a book which will be published next Spring and I'm keen to speak to Leaders-with-a-capital L: CEOS, HR and People Directors, organisations with data, organisations who want change to happen and want to be part of that change: I will feature case studies.
