Is Working Remotely the Best Option?

Since the dawn of the digital era, with devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets at the ready for users, the physical official work which requires the effort of commuting to the workplace is slowly becoming a thing of the past era. Working remotely is being repeatedly hailed as the easy way for employees to feel mentally and physically well. However, the hard reality is more difficult.

Working remotely has been hailed as the answer to a few of the issues of the fast-paced, before-pandemic lifestyles people led. For a lot of people, it meant the opportunity to spend a lot of time with their children or wards, or dedicate the period that would have before, been wasted going to and fro a lot of fulfilling hobbies. However, the latest investigation into working remotely and the well-being of individuals have displayed mixed results.  In this year’s edition of the Microsoft New Future of Work Report, scientists have found that even though remote work could help with satisfaction at work, it could also lead to workers feeling isolated socially, guilty, and overcompensating a lot.

The bad effects had shocked a few workers, who now feel the pressure, discovering that working remotely was not necessarily the wellness solution it had been categorized as. But for a lot of individuals, the negative sides were worth it. For the generation that had consistently dealt with a physical office-based working life before the coronavirus pandemic, the issues arising from working from home were only just a small price to pay for the freedom it offered.
