Benefits of Looking after the Wellbeing of Employees Working from Home
Remote working arrangements have many benefits for companies as well as for employees.
In particular, employees working from home can save money and suffer less stress as they do not need to commute. Furthermore, staff can create a better work-life balance for themselves, due to more flexible work arrangments. So, there is a lot to be said in favour of remote working.
However, there are also risks for employees’ well-being. Employees can feel isolated working from home; they can suffer from a lack of structure in their working day and they might find it hard to keep a clear separation between work and home life.
The problem is that, when an employee works remotely, it is easy for a company to forget about them and assume that everything is going well.
Unfortunately, things do not always go well. Also, if an employee who works from home is suffering, they are less likely to ask for help and raise the issue with HR or their line manager.
So, it is important for companies to be proactive in looking after the well-being of their staff, even when they work remotely.
Training your staff on what the challenges of home working for their physical and mental health can be and how to address these challenges is a good place to start.
Whether your employees’ well-being is suffering or not at the moment, it is a good thing to raise awareness of any possible issues so they know what to do and how to ask for help should the need arise. These home working wellbeing training course materials are designed for this purpose.

Why Should You, as a Trainer, Teach a Workshop on Working from Home Wellbeing?
Remote working is becoming more and more common and it is a trend that is very likely to continue.
Also, companies are becoming more aware of the importance of looking after their employees’ wellbeing to improve staff retention and engagement.
So, being able to offer a course that combines wellbeing with remote working will make you stand out as a trainer who is up to speed with the current trends in society and in the modern workplace.
