For the past few years, the surge of remote work brought many benefits to employees, including working in the convenience and comfort of home. In fact, many companies now offer remote and hybrid work opportunities as an option for employees rather than just a temporary solution during the height of the pandemic. However, while remote work has its perks, it comes with drawbacks your company should consider before making significant decisions.

Some psychological risks for remote and work-from-home professionals include less social support, less feedback, burnout, and loneliness. Some workers enjoy the freedom and flexibility of working from home, while others see their screen as a barrier to work relationships. And some people have mixed feelings. With some mindful actions, you can help create a sense of belonging and inclusivity at your workplace despite having your team working in remote settings.
