Revealed! Working remotely could harm workplace culture

Nuffield Health showcased a whitepaper reviewing the impact of remote working on employees and employers

Nuffield Health showcased a whitepaper reviewing the impact of remote working on employees and employers

In a recent whitepaper published by Nuffield Health, a long-standing healthcare charity, research indicated that an increase in working remotely could lead to low productivity and poor employee relations.

The research detailed that these negatives could set in after more than two and a half days of working from home per week. It’s important to note, however, that if employers work collaboratively with employees to establish an appropriate balance of office/home working, then the experience can be a notably positive one.

For franchisors, the impact of the study has highlighted a fundamental skill, key to universal success: communication.

The independent report, conducted with the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and written in partnership with Public Policy Projects, reviewed published literature examining the associations between remote working and stress, wellbeing, health and productivity. The included studies drew upon over 7,000 individuals, looking at organizations of all sizes and across a number of different sectors.
