Impact of Remote Work on Employee Engagement and Burnout

Last Updated on 04 October, 2021

COVID-19 has forced companies to shift the workplace to home. While remote working has been a relief for many employees, it has its own share of drawbacks.

Working in isolation has taken a huge toll on employee health- both physically and mentally. Depression and fatigue have become constant companions. As a result, employee burnout has seen a rise and productivity has taken a hit. In such circumstances, employers are looking out for ways to rejuvenate the workforce and engage them.

In this podcast, Tatiana Cirio talks about how the pandemic has severely affected employee engagement and led to stress and increased burnout. She further explains how employers can cope with the new changes and take measures accordingly.
