According to Deutsche Bank, this is the end of the honeymoon phase for workers’ relationship with remote work.

Based on a Deutsche Bank report to its clients, many workers express that they’re feeling isolated from their colleagues.

Owing to improper remote work setup, women are prone to musculoskeletal problems. Nearly 40% of workers in the US say that they feel exhausted after attending virtual meetings the entire week.

“Despite our initial honeymoon, people are starting to realise that the freedom of work-from-home does have some downsides: dilution of company culture, coordination issues, and even the mental wellbeing of some workers.”

A survey conducted by the firm showed people still want to continue working remotely for two to three day a week even after the pandemic. However, the bank is expecting offices in major financial hubs to refill quickly.

“Work-from-home has brought new freedoms, saved some extra cash by cutting out commutes. However, concerns surrounding mental health, the hurting of inner-city businesses, new graduates unable to connect with their peers and even vulnerability to cyber attacks have led to questions about whether our honeymoon with work-from-home is drawing to a close.”
