Remote-working has led to a decrease in productivity, with many employees finding their home environment full of distractions.
According to the report, distractions at home and lack of communication with colleagues were the two major contributors to the decrease in productivity. Around 30% of respondents also blamed the difficulty in accessing the necessary tools and resources.
For many employees, remote-working is changing their sleeping pattern, another potential reason for the decrease in productivity.
More than 80% of workers admitted that their sleeping pattern had been changed, but only 30% of them said they felt sleepy during work hours.
Some employees said their work hours had been increased and that they were finding little or no time to carry out household chores.
Globant has suggested employers that they should never spy on their remote workers, saying such an act would undermine employees’ morale.
