stressed employee working from home

雖然遠距工作的優點被廣泛讚譽,但最近的研究揭示了一個不太為人所知的事實:Work From Home 的員工有時比在辦公室工作更大壓力。根據知名美國數據分析公司Gallup於6月發表的《2023年全球職場狀況》報告,指出45%的遠距工作者在日常工作中感到壓力,相較於辦公室員工高出7%(38%)。讓我們來探討這一發現背後的三個主要原因:

1️⃣ 每天OT多2.5小時 🕧 :


2️⃣ 61%人感到社交孤立😔:


3️⃣ 67%需提供額外工作證明 💼:

由於缺乏面對面監督,上司可能無意識地認為在家工作的下屬不夠勤奮。遠距工作者為了安撫上司,會感到壓力提供額外的工作證明,例如積極參加線上會議、隨傳隨到、紀錄KPI、以及定期報告工作。調查指出,67%的遠距工作者坦承保持全天候on call 是他們壓力的重大來源。



45% of Employees claim WFH Increases Stress :

Overtime work, Social Isolation, and Extra Work Proof as Main Factors

While the advantages of working from home have been widely celebrated, recent research sheds light on a lesser-known truth: remote work can sometimes be more stressful than working from the office. According to Gallup 2023 State of Work Report, a striking 45% of remote employees experience stress in their day-to-day work, compared to only 38% of their on-site counterparts. Let's explore the three key reasons behind this revelation:

1️⃣ Increased Working Hours: 🕧

In an office setting, employees can easily demonstrate their dedication by physically being present. However, remote workers face the challenge of relying solely on their work output to showcase their commitment. Shockingly, 70% of remote employees now find themselves working on weekends, leading to an average of 2.5 additional work hours per day when working from home.

2️⃣ Social Isolation 😔:

A staggering 61% of remote employees confess to missing the face-to-face interactions they once enjoyed with their colleagues in the office. Although virtual meetings bridge some gaps, they often revolve around work-related matters, leaving little room for casual conversation and relationship building.

3️⃣ Proof of Productivity 💼:

Managers may unconsciously perceive remote workers as less diligent due to their absence in the office. Consequently, remote employees feel compelled to provide additional evidence of their productivity, such as attending online meetings, logging KPIs, and regularly reporting work results. As a result, a considerable 67% of remote workers admit to feeling pressured to be available around the clock.

While this report underscores the potential downsides of remote work, Gallup emphasizes the need for HR leaders to reflect on whether the increased stress is attributable to the work environment or management practices. After all, no physical location can rectify poor management, and even the traditional office setup alone cannot create a truly exceptional organizational culture.
