The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, catapulting hundreds of thousands of workers and their employers into vastly different work patterns and routines. Employees are responding to this new way of life in diverse and innovative ways, but it’s not without its challenges.
Now, the Whittaker Institute at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG), in conjunction with the Western Development Commission (WDC), is conducting a national survey to examine employees’ experiences of remote working in these unprecedented times.
They hope to explore a number of topics including the impact of remote working on productivity and staff wellbeing, and how workers are adjusting to new work patterns.
All survey responses are completely confidential, and participants will not be identifiable in any way.
Irish Congress of Trade Unions general secretary Patricia King has urged workers to take part in this survey. “This research will provide recommendations for employers on how to better manage remote working in the current crisis, as well as more generally,” she said.
