What is remote work doing to our brain‪?‬ Fast Track: Career conversations with Margie Hartley

    • Business

When the concept of remote work became common practice in 2020, it was praised as the holy grail of better work-life balance and an effective way of replenishing our mental and physical resources. But it soon became clear that several issues arose from not being able to separate our workday from our home life and the number of work decisions increased significantly - and as a result we have a greater cognitive load to manage. Margie Hartley talks with Sophie Deutsch, Deputy Editor of HRM, the member publication of the Australian Human Resources Institute to find out what prolonged periods of working from home could be doing to our brains, what steps we can take to alleviate some of those detrimental effects and how work will change so that learning and development can still flourish in a remote work setting.
