The COVID-19 pandemic has further challenged traditional work arrangements. Researchers worldwide are studying hybrid work arrangements concerning the various needs and preferences of working in organizations from both employees and managers. This pandemic initiated psychological research on how managers can cope with this change while taken into account employees’ understanding of the unpredictable and new situation and their preferences for when and where to work after the Covid-19 pandemic. In this seminar I present the development of a research center (research lab) and the first results of three related studies.
