The Impact of COVID-19 on the Workplace and at Home
To say that the pandemic related to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has upended work as we know it is a vast understatement. Within the course of several weeks, the impact of COVID-19 on the workplace has been extreme – the virus shut down vast swathes of public and professional life for millions of people around the United States and globally, from restaurants, gyms and public spaces to making grocery workers, delivery workers and healthcare professionals the new “essential” workers.
For professionals who have the option to work from home, the shift from standard working hours to trying to maintain normality through stay-in-place or limited movement along with roommates, partners and spouses and children, this can be a trying time. The workplace is shifting, for how long no one knows, and the impact of COVID-19 on corporate culture and work-life balance is having untold effects. One such change necessitated by the pandemic that we have already witnessed is the need to work remotely.
