Keywords:Covid-19, Stress, Work from Home, Thoughts, Lockdown, Mental Health
AbstractThe ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has affected people’s social and occupational lives. Working from home has become the new norm. Work is almost invariably accompanied with some level of stress. Individuals have almost always worked in a traditional office setting. As a result of a rapid change in their typical surroundings, humans can experience worry and stress. Combining a global epidemic that instils dread and worry with working from home may result in an increased level of stress. Individuals who worked from home during the covid-19 pandemic were surveyed. The study examined employees’ positive and negative thoughts and discovered that their thoughts had a greater effect on their stress levels than their financial or social standing. The study surveyed individuals (N=91) in Chennai, India, who worked from home and had prior work experience with Information Technology (IT) during the country’s first Covid-19 outbreak, Lockdown. Stress levels were shown to be highly related with employee attitudes regarding the epidemic.
