52% of US workers experienced burnout in 2021. With similar numbers being reported in Europe and beyond, this is a global health issue with potentially catastrophic consequences. That’s why we are collaborating with Remote and IE Business School – to understand the effects of different life-work boundary management styles on worker health and wellbeing.
Loneliness is on the rise. It can lead to sedentary behaviour, relationship damage, depression, substance abuse and more. We conducted this study in order to understand what makes someone ‘socially fulfilled’ in remote work environments, and how policymakers and employers can help the ‘at risk’ segment of the workforce (in partnership with Selina & University of Boston).
When the first ‘lockdowns’ were announced in 2020, charities such as Women’s Aid highlighted the increased risk of harm and isolation for those affected by domestic abuse. Now, with the widespread adoption of remote work set to continue, it’s vital that we understand the ongoing impacts of this major societal shift on gender dynamics/safety.
