Unravelling 'phygital' work practices among employees: Examining the good, the bad, and the ugly.
The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic has catalysed a pervasive transformation in the organizational landscape, particularly with regards to work design. The concept of "Phygital" labour has emerged as a promising paradigm that synergistically combines conventional office-centric work practices with intervals of telecommuting. Within the complexities of this novel operational framework, this talk aims to disseminate an empirically grounded methodology elucidating the profound impact of Phygital work on the psychological well-being, overall mental state, and productivity of employees. Through a comprehensive evaluation of diverse strategies, our results will elucidate critical practical and theoretical implications concerning employee welfare and the digitization drive in a post-pandemic era, which is anticipated to exert enduring influences on both workforce and enterprises, consequently shaping their trajectory in the foreseeable future.
