Covid 19 pandemic: a detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of employees

The COVID-19 Pandemic will have a long term effect on the way we are working. Habits and guidelines are changing across Europe on almost a daily basis.

Flex-office, home office, co-working spaces, hot-desking or the traditional office, are just a few of the new ways of working employers and employees are confronted with. This evolution of workspaces has a significant impact on the comfort and ergonomics of your teams, which are a prerequisite to ensure their well-being and efficiency.

Our partner Fellowes Brands has conducted a pan-European survey to shine a light on the new ways of working, and the impacts that a poor workstation set-up has on our physical and mental health. The results show that this is a topic you should seriously take into consideration.

As an international specialist on the working environment topic, Lyreco is here to help you embrace these new challenges through expert advice, dedicated services and a broad ergonomic solutions offering.

How is the new way of working impacting your teams' physical and mental health?

The New Way of Working study from Fellowes interviewed 7000 employees across Europe and revealed…

‣  Home working is having a damaging impact on employees mental and physical health.

  Inadequate home workstations and work pressures are putting people’s health at risk.

‣  The home working trend is likely to continue in the future therefore, going forward, it will be critical for businesses and governments to review and adapt working practises, to future proof the health of the workforce.

‣  Home comforts seem a long way off for many people working from home, with a significant number experiencing pain and discomfort caused by their work set-up. Employees surveyed complained of suffering from strained eyes, headaches, sore back and stiff neck.
With over half (52%) of those surveyed saying that their home workstation caused more aches, pains and strains than their corporate office workstation, it seems that not enough has been done to help workers’ home set ups meet health and safety standards.
