Work as we once knew it has changed, perhaps forever, by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since mid-2020, operations, schedules and strategies were forced to be more nimble, adopting remote-work models to keep employees safe. 

That wasn’t the case for every industry, however, with restaurants and event venues struggling to stay afloat, many have since gone under. That raises many questions, so now we turn to you, readers. 

We’re accepting questions like, “Will companies adopt a hybrid working schedule?” or “Are vaccines going to be required to work in-office?” or “Will some companies in KC forgo having a brick-and-mortar office?”

What questions have bubbled up during the pandemic about the future of work? Our team of journalists is ready to work with you to find the answers as part of curiousKC, our public engagement journalism effort. 

Here, your voice and your concerns are prioritized. So, write to us below. We’ll be reaching out soon if we begin reporting on your query. 

Have other questions or tips? Email community reporter Vicky Diaz-Camacho at vdiaz-camacho@kansascitypbs.org.
