About the Working Well From Home project: The Covid-19 pandemic has initiated an unprecedented shift in the way that organisations operate, with working from home now being common practice. As businesses continue to adapt and begin to consider the utility of home-working for the longer-term, it will be vital to identify the benefits and disadvantages of working from home for both employers and employees alike. Team East Sussex are keen to support local businesses in improving the experience of home-working, and are collaborating with researchers in the School of Psychology at the University of Sussex to identify the needs of employers, employees, and self-employed individuals who work and/or live in East Sussex. In the coming months, we will develop a home-working toolkit for employers, drawing on research evidence and informed by best practice.
