According to a survey carried out by Resilience First, more than half of remote workers are now suffering from working from home fatigue. And this is likely to be a long term situation, with Europe entering a second lockdown and three quarters of the biggest employers now saying that remote working in some shape is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
Resilience First has just published the first of a two-part guide for organisations dealing with issues around flexible working on the back of the Covid-19 lockdown, Resilience and Flexible Working – The Ups and Downs. The Guide is produced in collaboration with law firm Russell-Cooke.
The Guide contains practical information for employers on how to maintain trust, teams and morale, how to maintain mental wellbeing and how to keep employees safe whilst working remotely. It also includes a customised WFH Risk Assessment Template from Resilience First for employers to use with their teams.
Kizzy Augustin, who helped launch the Guide, comments in HR Director that many employers may simply not be aware of their health and safety obligations - both physical and mental - towards their employees.
