Working from home is less stressful: New report

 New research conducted from Canada Life Group Insurance suggests that shedworking and working from home generally offers a far less stressful work environment than more 'traditional' approaches.

The study indicates that nearly 10 million workers suffer from workplace-related stress and anxiety - most importantly, a third of workers in cubicles and open plan offices are regularly affected by workplace stress compared to one in six of those who work from home. Moreover, more than three quarters of people who are offered and take flexible working options say that their productivity has increased as a result.
“It is important to keep in mind that not everybody operates in the same way and being flexible with your staff can often mean creating a better working environment and increased engagement," said Paul Avis, Marketing Director of Canada Life. "For example, flexible working not only has the benefit of improving work-life balance but can also have a positive influence on overall employee health. People want to give their best, but we are all leading increasingly busy and “always-on” lives. Allowing employees to fit in time to exercise, drop off and collect their children from school or start/finish earlier or later can make an enormous difference to productivity. It also demonstrates that employers care about their staff and are prepared to move beyond a one-size-fits-all approach to ensure employees work at their best, which can only be a good thing for companies."
