Working from home offers a wonderful array of advantages for employees, but there are subtle pressures that can exact a toll over time.
Blind, an anonymous professional network that gains raw insights from more than 3 million verified tech and finance professionals, ran a survey asking:
- Do you feel obligated to reply to work emails, regardless of time of the day?
- Do you contact your boss often or stay on your laptop so you appear to be working hard remotely?
- Do you feel like your boss values you based on how many hours you work?
Blind found that, “Thirty-six percent of professionals feel obligated to reply to work emails, regardless of time of the day.”
It also found that just “33% of professionals have received a date as to when they are expected to return to the office,” so a huge majority of telecommuters could be in for a lengthy spell of remote work.
