In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this timely Handbook builds upon research and practice to discuss and assess what is currently known about virtual work and its evolution, given the increasing numbers of those working virtually.

Taking a holistic approach to the subject, the expert contributors review the critical areas of virtual work split into five thematic parts. Firstly technology, the foundation of virtual work, is thoroughly discussed focussing on new forms of technology and the use of AI. Working practices of both the individual and virtual teams are then fully reviewed alongside the organisation, context and emerging systems that support virtual work in practice. Forward-thinking, this Handbook, looks at the future direction and where we go from here towards the next decade of virtual work.

Managers and practitioners who are moving towards virtual or hybrid working or continuing to work remotely will find this an excellent resource for ongoing and future guidance. Scholars and researchers interested in this expanding subject will find this illuminating and informative.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Handbook of Virtual Work provides a gold mine of incredible insights on working virtually, from selecting communication technology and artificial intelligence augmentation, to managing the work-family interface and emotions, and maximizing the collective dynamics that characterize collaboration in the virtual world. Gilson and her colleagues have assembled a multidisciplinary set of global authorities on these topics. The virtual workplace is here to stay and this Handbook is poised to help researchers and practitioners alike navigate the challenges and celebrate the advantages for years to come.’
– Cristina Gibson, Pepperdine University, California, US

‘What a pleasure to see this new contribution to one of the more challenging topics for managers in the post Covid-19 era. While we have been writing about and researching virtual, distant, and remote workers for several years, the pandemic made this a critical topic for managers to address as many employees worked at home. Gilson, O’Neill and Maynard have done a tremendous job of addressing this issue by collecting the ideas and research from experts from across the world. They offer here a comprehensive and organized review of what we know about virtual work into five key topic areas. From the technology to individual employees to organizational considerations, this Handbook covers it all. For anyone who wants to learn the latest and best knowledge available on virtual work, this is the book to read.’
– Robert C. Ford, Professor Emeritus, University of Central Florida, US
