Our love-hate relationship with working from home
18 Oct 2020
After six months of working from home, many of us have settled into new routines and accepted that remote work is here to stay for a while. In speaking with employees in the United States, Australia/New Zealand and Europe at my company, I found that many are experiencing a range of emotions when it comes to unexpectedly working remotely, which shouldn’t be too surprising given our varied circumstances at home.
I’ve discovered that many of the challenges of our new work environments aren’t a result of the shift to remote work. The challenges employees were already facing have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
What we love
Not surprisingly, many employees have expressed how much they love working from home, a perk previously extended to only about4% of the workforce.
