Would you believe that working from home actually increases productivity?
We all know that the COVID-19 pandemic presented new challenges for the workforce, but what about new opportunities for the future of work? When the world went into lockdown, employees traded in their commute to work for an extra bit of sleep. CEO’s traded their corner offices for their kitchen counter, but beyond the physical location, what else changed?
According to an article by The Washington Post, “Lakshman Swamy said he is more productive at home, largely because he doesn’t have to commute and has a ‘preserved workspace.’ In addition, he said, working remotely has allowed him to spend more time with his family and take better care of himself — attending meetings while walking, for example, and making more nutritious meals.”
This article examines not only the physical changes brought about by the pandemic, but also changes in productivity and mental health.
