The pandemic has changed the nature of work, accelerating the adoption of digital technologies by at least a decade and ushering in a hybrid model where work extends beyond offices and engages more women, Tata Sons Pvt Chairman Natarajan Chandrasekaran said.

While the office remains a critical hub and staff will gradually return, the world won’t return to its pre-Covid norm, Chandrasekaran, head of India’s biggest private-sector employer, said during the Qatar Economic Forum on Tuesday. The Indian executive, joined by fellow employers such as Iwg Plc Chief Executive Officer Mark Dixon, said workplaces will benefit from allowing staff greater leeway with the help of technology.
