Debates about the future of work did not start with the Covid pandemic. The erosion of employee engagement, measured by numerous international studies, had long been a warning sign about a work organization that was out of step with employee expectations. With the implementation of hybrid work, many companies now have the opportunity to rethink this organization. How can collaboration be made more efficient, more spontaneous, more inclusive? How can agile and resilient teams be organized while the environment is in constant flux? What assets should be invested in, as the future appears more illegible than ever: offices, technological tools, managerial skills, etc.?

To answer these questions, the authors have surveyed thousands of executives, entrepreneurs and experts. These exchanges allowed them to form some convictions about the new world of work, which they share here in a book that is both concrete and inspiring, and is supported by many examples.
