Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, work from home has become a new normal to us. But since the number of cases of coronavirus has declined, the restrictions are being now eased and so is with the work from home which gradually is going to end. Office life has its own set of perks and challenges. Well, the perquisites of office life are seeing your favourite coworkers, scoring free treats in the kitchen and just having a place where you can focus on your job-related responsibilities.
Since the population who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 rises, more employers are asking employees to return back to the office. But according to a survey it is said that the employees may welcome the return to the on-site work but may face a negative impact on their mental health. Almost half of those who have not yet returned can anticipate negative mental health impacts.
The return to a post-pandemic new normal is not a simple overnight switch from remote to on-site activity; many organizations are planning enduring changes to operating models and adaptable, resilient mindsets to ensure that all of their employees are able to work in inclusive environments that support their best work.
In an exclusive interaction on the DocTalk Session on Healthwire shares advice to reduce stress and anxiety for work transition amid the pandemic:
“I believe everybody might be finding a respite to go back to office rather than working from home as now they would be on their work stations. At home, we juggle between working from the bedroom or working from our placed work station but when we are at our office, we need to be really aganomics of this,” said Dr Seema Grover, Senior Consultant, PHYSIOTHERAPY AND REHABILITATION, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals.
