The psychological dimensions of working from home & returning employees to the workplace after a crisis

Fantastic to talk to Dr Melanie Irons about "The psychological dimensions of working from home and returning employees to the workplace after a crisis" on the latest episode of the HR Breakfast Club Podcast.

Traditionally, the ability to work from home as been viewed as something of a luxury, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, reports are emerging of high levels of psychological distress among employees working from home.

We are joined today by Dr Melanie Irons, Senior Consultant at Steople (formerly known as Peoplescape), who explains some of the psychological dimensions at play, bringing her knowledge of crisis communication to the situation in which we now – as a global community – find ourselves.

Dr Irons explains that rapid change and ambiguity are characteristic of emergency situations.  But how can employers provide certainty, flexibility and transparency within the wash of constant flux?

Feel free to share & review if you think the conversation is helpful.

Call or email me if you want to suggest future topics?
