Throughout the course of the pandemic, we have surveyed over 2,000 parents, mostly moms (97%), and many of them have shared similar struggles. Despite the “flexibility” of working from home, they are feeling more overwhelmed than ever before.
If the workload and deadlines haven’t changed, but employees are pulling long hours caring for children and managing household responsibilities, then the ‘working from home feels like a trap. Many are working more hours and have less time for self-care or resetting.
Many employees want to continue working remotely, but employers need to set realistic expectations in light of all the pandemic changes. Which impact people at home and in most industries.
We help organizations become Allies @ Work & customize programs to create inclusive workplaces that don’t burn people out. To learn more click the link in the bio.
