Studies indicate how the coronavirus will shape the future of work

The coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on the world of work. It’s seen millions of people lose their jobs as industries were obliterated and businesses closed their doors. But for many of those lucky enough to remain employed, it has revolutionised the ways operate.
In the long term, according to a recent study from Germany, the number of business trips will probably decrease by 30 percent compared to the time before the pandemic, and traffic in general by at least eight percent. Only in one area have things taken an environmental step backwards in Germany. While public transport remains as empty in many places as it was at the beginning of the crisis, the roads have filled up with provate cars. For fear of infection, people are driving more often – as much as before the crisis.
