PD Seminar: Productivity Commission - Modelling working from home

View the slides from this presentation

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many employees and firms to experiment with working from home. This demonstrated that many jobs can done effectively from home and that the number of people working from home will likely remain high relative to pre-pandemic levels.  As part of the Productivity Commission’s Working from Home report, a simple model of working from home was developed to better understand how it might affect the Australian economy. Dr Mabel Andalón and Dr Matthew Jones will present an overview of the model and the implications drawn from it.
