Reducing digital stress while working remotely
While digitisation has many benefits in the workplace, the shift to remote working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has in many cases increased the stress faced by employees. Some workers now face longer working hours, higher demands and the inability to ‘switch off’, all of which can be seen as a risk for occupational safety and health.
To address the issue and present possible solutions, the Polish focal point is organising a conference on the topic, entitled "Remote work? No problem!" The speakers discuss the impact of remote work on employees’ mental health, as well as topics such as how to maintain wellbeing in the digital world and how to manage information overload. In addition, the panel focuses on the latest methods of digital stress reduction.
The event is taking place in Warsaw and is aimed at teleworkers, human resources departments and occupational safety and health technicians and specialists.
