Working from home

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.

  1. Working longer hours, taking reduced lunch breaks
  2. Loneliness
  3. 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.
  4. Harder to separate work and home balance
  5. Musculoskeletal aches and pains.
