The pandemic has led to a telework boom. As a result of lockdown measures imposed in different countries, the percentage of company workers forced to work remotely grew from a measly 4.7% to around 17% in the European Union, with certain countries seeing a rise to as much as 60% in 2020 (e.g., Belgium). As a result, new regulation on remote working was approved, and many employees experienced this modality of work.
In this context, this Special Issue looks for submissions related to the effects of remote working on employees’ health and wellbeing in both the public and private sector.
There is some previous literature on the impact of telework on job satisfaction (Smith et al., 2018), stress (Weiner et al., 2014) and employees´ health (Tavares, 2017). However, most of this research was carried out before the pandemic, and as a result, there is a need to expand this area of knowledge from the pandemic and beyond.
This Special Issue aims to contribute to the previous literature about modalities of work and to the challenges related to the impact of remote working on health since the increase in the number of people working from home ever since the COVID-19 pandemic emerged.
