Since the original lock-down, many companies have resorted to working from home. This means a lot of free time is at people’s doorstep due to the fact they need not have to leave it. Last year, Gartner revealed that 82% of company leadership support the plan to allow workers to come-in remotely for at least some of the time. This year, remote working has displayed a lot of positive aspects including: more safety from COVID-19, more quality time spent with family and less overhead for office-units.
On the other hand, a few negative aspects include tending to work more and later into the evenings, weight gain and higher BP from the lack of external mobility, and less physical interaction with fellow human beings overall. While remote work is not some new fad, as we all move forward, there will exist a degree of remote work and thus changing how people work together to get their jobs and projects done.
