Shifting Remote Workers from Survive to Thrive mode

SUMMARY

While the immediate health benefits of avoiding common workspaces are obvious in the face of a frightening pandemic, it is important to consider the mental health consequences that can come with working remotely.

Although studies have found remote workers to be more productive, healthier and enjoy a more positive work-life balance, the latest research also shows a darker side of increased mental health issues.

For those who are accustomed to a steady rate of social interactions, the shift to remote work can lead to feelings of isolation and burnout. Employees state unplugging after work, loneliness, collaboration/communication, distractions at home and staying motivated as their biggest struggles with remote working.

If not intentionally addressed both the short and long-term impact on your organisation is huge.
