Study: Working Remotely During COVID-19

Gain key insights from our Emotion Intelligence study on employee emotions toward remote work amid the pandemic.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever, employees across all industries are working from home. Remote work is leading to different and unusual behaviors and emotions on a day-to-day basis. Using our proprietary Emotion Intelligence tool, we conducted a survey to understand the emotions employees are feeling, not only about working from home, but also about how their companies are handling the current situation.

The findings from this study will be essential to HR professionals wading through new territory amid a global pandemic, and can provide insight to inform strategies and policies related to employee relations.

Here are a few highlights from the study:

  • 4 new segments of employees have emerged
  • A dramatic drop in employee mental health at all levels
  • Differing perceptions of how companies are adapting to the pandemic
  • Some decline in job satisfaction
