  • CGTN published this video item, entitled “Back to work: Mixing work modes to create the new norm” – below is their description.

    With the epidemic largely under control in China, most companies have returned to their pre-epidemic mode of work. In some countries and regions, remote work, more flexible office hours and four-day work weeks are becoming more popular. 20% of Canadian tech workers are able to work from home on a regular basis; and elsewhere, leaders in New Zealand and Finland are already advocating shorter working hours to boost domestic spending. As our reporter Liu Jiaxin finds, day-to-day work for many might never be the same.
