Research on

Working from Home


The global outbreak of COVID-19 is rapidly and drastically changing how and where work is done, often with little choice for those involved. We aim to better understand how individuals and organisations are being affected, what new possibilities are being created, and how we can provide practical support for the intense demands that workers are experiencing right now.

Remote Managers Are Having Trust Issues

It seems that during the Covid-19 pandemic, some managers are having a hard time adjusting to managing employees without “line of sight.” Hand in hand with managers’ struggles, many employees are feeling the negative effects of close monitoring and distrust from their bosses. The good news is that these managers can be supported and trained to manage their employees more effectively from a distance.
