While the idea of working at home – and not having to go into the office – seems great, it’s actually not all it’s cracked up to be.
According to a new study, there's actually a "dark side" to working from home.
Researchers found that 41% of employees who telecommute said they feels some degree of job stress, compared to just 25% of office workers.
And 42% of work-from-home employees suffer from insomnia, compared to just 29% of those who report to an office.
It seems that those who work from home have a tough time maintaining boundaries and don’t know when to stop working, which causes mental health issues.
The researchers suggest that the best compromise is to work two or three days a week from home -- and the rest of the time in the office to get that much needed face-to-face interaction. (RT)
