The modern workplace is changing rapidly thanks to technology, but the recent pandemic has increased the rate of change for many businesses.
Virtual offices have replaced the physical space and with it, a new era of collaboration outside the traditional workplace has begun. But for some, working remotely can often feel like living at work, not working from home.
While technology has changed the way we work, it has also influenced who we work with, the rise of the gig economy and the ease at which a company can engage a specialist for particular tasks means that not only are employees working from disparate locations, the people they work with can also change on a regular basis.
All of these factors, while providing flexibility for both employees and employers, may have long-term effects on the mental health of the modern workforce. Alongside the rise in productivity tools, and the proliferation of virtual office software, is a wave of new thinking in the wellbeing space. A new era of positive psychology that may counterbalance the negative effects of the new working environment.
Kelly Michael, co-founder of Human Link, is an experienced psychology practitioner who specializes in positive psychology and wellbeing in the workplace. In this episode she dives into some of the current health and wellbeing issues facing companies and how to navigate them in the modern workplace.
