this calls for new challenges as well as opportunities. Some voices has raised a worry of isolation, loss of boundaries between work and free time to name a few.
Some companies has realized the possible positive effect of work away from office or as we say "WAFO". Its not a new idea, companies have had staff working from home even before the pandemic due to many reasons such as minimizing office space needs, geographic challenges (staff living in remote areas) etc. saving both time and money. However we are facing a exponential increase in WAFO.
Regardless of benefits there are challenges with the work environment when its out of our control (literally). Stressors such as ergonomic challenges, privacy, conceptual (infra structure, hardware, software, administration), social (or lack of social support), general workload etc.
The PWELT WAFO tool assess Demand Resource balance, and a number of possible stressors that are continuously monitored. A weekly repport will provide an up to date status identifying imbalances in an early stage opening up for preventive and reactive interventions.
