Whilst many may assume that the sudden shift to remote working has effectively eliminated one of the oldest and most widespread issues in the workplace – presenteeism – worryingly, it seems that physical presence isn’t a necessity for the issue to remain prevalent.
In fact, with the steep increase in remote working tools such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Zoom, it’s possible for employees to be ‘plugged in’ to work for far longer, as on average, those working from home are racking up an extra 28 hours of monthly overtime since lockdown began. It equates to nearly four days’ work.
