Supporting Remote Workers Who Are Fatigued

A new survey conducted by Resilience First has revealed that over half of remote workers are experiencing remote working fatigue. With countries around the world entering second and third waves of the ongoing pandemic, this condition could linger on for much longer.

While some experts have argued that this means the traditional office is obsolete, others believe they can work in tandem with remote working policies. However, returning to the workplace has become a slower process than anticipated.

This has led many companies to make the permanent shift to flexible work policies that allow a combination of both in-office and remote working. Now, those who were once apprehensive about adopting remote working have accepted the reality that this arrangement will be a necessary part of the workforce moving forward.

In collaboration with law firm Russell-Cooke, Resilience First published its “Resilience and Flexible Working – The Ups and Downs” guide that contains advice on how employers can maintain trust, engagement and morale for their employees while navigating these unprecedented times.

“As a health and safety lawyer I know that many businesses are simply not aware of their duties towards their employees and the sanctions for non-compliance,” said Kizzy Augustin, partner and health and safety specialist at Russell-Cooke. “It is important that we protect our employees both from the physical health issues that are uppermost in our minds (contracting Covid-19) and also the mental health issues that may arise as a result of prolonged working from home or changes to the usual working arrangements. We hope this guide will have wide relevance and broad buy-in.”
