Remote Work and Well-being
Some wonder what the ramifications might be
When Cat, 30, was offered a fully remote role last year, she didn’t think twice about accepting. By then, Cat, who lives in London and works in environmental services, had already been working mostly remotely for some time as a result of the pandemic. She thought that being based from home wouldn't be much of a problem.
But during the past few months, Cat has started to have second thoughts.
"Working alone all day every day, particularly when my partner is in the office, is tough," said Cat. "Sometimes, I won't see anyone all day, which can be very lonely. I've found that instead of taking breaks to chat to people in my office, I pick up my phone. All of the extra screen time has definitely had a negative impact on my well-being."
