"Myerson and Ross's Unworking looks at the post-pandemic worlds of work. There are chapters on wellbeing, diversity, and the changes in the city itself concluding we need to unlearn familiar notions of the office and develop a new approach that celebrates difference, not homogeneity."--Edwin Heathcote "Financial Times"
"COVID changed our approach to the office but bold thinking is needed to secure its future. . . . Myerson and Ross [are] veteran observers of the future of work. . . . In Unworking, a timely new book about how to reinvent the office, they enlarge on some of the ways in which these realms have become increasingly porous, accelerated by the pandemic. . . . They are optimistic about the future of the office--but only if organizations can also reimagine the activities that it used to contain."--Andrew Hill "Financial Times"
"Unworking takes you on panoramic journey, arriving at a plausible, evidence-based future of how work and the workplace will evolve. Rigorous and readable, it offers a better understanding of how we can reinvent the workplace taxonomy."--Alessandro Ranaldi, Head of Workplace Consultancy, Foster + Partners
"A must-read for understanding the forces that influence how we work. Myerson and Ross expertly examine the facets reshaping the office landscape with a view into 'What's Next.' Unworking is an invaluable guide for anyone interested in the workplaces needed to help people thrive."--Harald Becker, director of customer engagements & insights, Microsoft
"This compelling, well-written book provides a historical perspective on the world of work, as well as a forward-thinking outlook on how to navigate its impact on our lives. Leisure and work are evermore intertwined, and Unworking gave me moments of insight that I can act upon both at work and in private. A joy to read."--Cees de Bont, dean of the School of Design and Creative Arts, Loughborough University
"The pandemic has dramatically changed the way we work and how we work. Unworking is a fantastic and highly readable book, providing a pathway for the new world of work and the office environments of the future. This is a 'must read' for senior executives and many others in navigating the opportunities for future workplaces--you won't regret it!"--Sir Cary Cooper CBE, 50th Anniversary Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health, University of Manchester
