Reinventing Work Chair

See this page in
French[FR]

The "Reinventing Work" Chair, signed in December 2019, aims to improve our understanding of how the transformation of work as a whole leads to organizational changes.

The Chair will be devoted to studying the development of new or renewed skills, deployed in different types of work environments (remote leadership, working from home, management of experts).

A few words from
Emmanuelle Leon
Scientific Director

Digital technology and artificial intelligence are leading us, above all, to question what we call ‘work’, ‘business’, ‘management’ and even ‘workspaces’! We must also understand the changes taking place, their origins and their consequences for employees and their managers. From considering how to develop skills in response to increasing flexibility, agility and digitisation, to rethinking the balance between private and professional life, or analysing the role of algorithms in recruitment... the issues are exciting and I am delighted about the opportunites offered by this new Chair to explore them in detail and reinvent them...

Emmanuelle Léon, Professor ESCP and Scientific Director of the Chair

Objectives

Decode the changes in today's work to anticipate tomorrow's work.

A common conviction

For several years now, BNP Paribas has been carrying out in-depth research on these subjects and shares with ESCP the conviction that digital transformation goes hand-in-hand with a strong demand for changes in working methods and, more generally, in the way professional activites are performed. The agreement entered into by the partners, under the aegis of the ESCP Foundation, stipulates that the Chair's activities shall be mainly based on ambitious research projects carried out in partnership with BNP Paribas.

Projects

These projects will explore the impacts of flexibility, digitisation and artificial intelligence on the behaviour of managers and their teams. The Chair's activities will be conducted in different contexts (national, international, in-house at BNP Paribas, and extended to other companies). Bringing together academics and professionals, will facilitate the development of a forward-looking perspective on current developments.

Impact Paper
When teleworking questions the meaning of work: Managerial lessons from the Covid-19 crisis

ESCP Business School
May 2020

As lockdown exit begins cautiously, as companies reopen their doors and as employees prepare mentally to return physically to their workspaces, it is time to draw the first lessons of this unprecedented crisis from a managerial point of view.

Written by Emmanuelle Léon

 

White Paper
Back to the office: towards hybrid management?

ESCP Business School
January 2022

The health crisis and the transformations taking place within companies have given us a glimpse of a new model of work organisation, described as hybrid, a combination of working at the office and working remotely.
