Widespread remote working has been quickly adopted as the norm by many businesses. According to the executives in a study completed by the Capgemini Research Institute, it found that three-quarters of organisations expect 30% or more of their employees to be working remotely, and over a quarter expect over 70% of staff to work remotely.
Working remotely has many benefits including skipping the time consuming and sometimes stressful daily commute, save costs by working from home and the added flexibility to daily schedules.
However, there are also downsides to remote working. Not being part of the office environment may leave you feeling isolated and struggle to maintain an acceptable balance between work and your personal life – which in turn, impacts your wellbeing.
When you no longer have the physical break that means leaving the office and commuting home at the end of the working day – it can be difficult to separate work and personal time.
Technology also means that work is accessible 24/7 and remote workers can often want to be responsive at any time to prove they are working just as hard at home. This can lead to many remote workers feeling like they are always in work mode – adding further to any already existing stress levels.
When you work from home there are a number of factors that you need to take into consideration and put in place different measures to support your wellbeing.
