Working from home has never been so popular, but this year since COVID -19 it was estimated that 60 % of the UK’s adult population were working from home and that 26% continue to work from home once restrictions lessen. Employers are finding increased productivity, reduced costs and due to the current COVID – 19 updates are keeping employees at home for now.
Working from home is beneficial for many people however there are many down sides.
- Working longer hours, taking reduced lunch breaks
- Poor ergonomic set up with poor desks/chairs and not getting up and about as you might do in an office regularly during the day.
- Harder to separate work and home balance
- Musculoskeletal aches and pains.
