The pandemic forced people to adopt remote work arrangements overnight, and now many workers don’t want to return to the old ways of doing things. It looks like the new normal will include remote work, so HR professionals need to figure out what that means going forward. The good news is that remote work does not have to be an engagement and collaboration killer. At the same time, remote work policies do need to take various risks into account.
Working from home has many perks, but it may leave you at risk for developing a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy habits. It may be easy to forget about exercise when you’re home all day. The good news is you’re in control of keeping yourself active while also getting your work done; it all comes down to building healthy habits throughout the day.
