MetadataShow full item record
The following study examines how young professionals conceptualize work, connections, and the functions of work flexibility in tandem to work and life expectations in post-pandemic working environments. The scholar interviewed participants (n=20) who worked in fully remote roles, with no office or corporate-sponsored co-working space in the city in which they live, using semi-structured protocol concerning facets of work and personal live values. The first theme examined digital communication and organizational processes online. The second theme delved into co-worker relationships and organizational culture. The final theme looked into well-being in remote work, organizations, and life satisfaction through the lens of young professionals post-COVID-19. The themes contributed to the academic understanding and application of “calling” and self-advancement theory.
