Nicholas Bloom, William Eberle Professor of Economics at Stanford University

According to Stanford economist Nicholas Bloom, “the fully remote plane is about to crash. I’m surprised it’s lasted this long — probably only due to the social capital we’ve built prior to the pandemic.” He now believes “hybrid is really the sweet spot long-term.”

Bloom has studied remote-work practices worldwide, and his research offers a clear-eyed understanding of the dynamics at play for both employees and leadership in remote and hybrid workforces. He has seen the struggles along with the big wins across a variety of industries, and his analysis of recent events provides a path for the future.

In this episode of HR Break Room®, Bloom joins host Caleb Masters to discuss:

  • the benefits and challenges of remote, hybrid and fully on-site working models
  • how demographics affect the success of a hybrid workforce
  • the importance of objective performance metrics for remote and hybrid workforces
  • the unintended HR liabilities arising from remote-work practices
Learn more insights about the current state of hybrid, remote and fully on-site workforce by attending our on demand webinar, Workplace of the Future: Remote Work and the Hybrid Workforce.
