Loosening the Lockdown - Survey results - British Psychology

September 2020

The key to an employee’s good performance while working from home was ‘happiness’. Happiness, engendered by a combination of active social and business connections, and of being allowed the autonomy to manage jobs as the worker saw fit. Results were dramatic. Autonomous, connected home workers felt more psychologically comfortable. This meant reduced stress, better engagement with all levels of the organization, higher feelings of creativity and sustained levels of performance. Unhappy workers, meanwhile, suffered across all fronts including their intellectual performance, which was significantly worse than those of their happier peers.
