The COVID-19 pandemic has led to much more time at home, fewer trips to the shops, extensive closure of businesses, and the near-disappearance of leisure activities. This webinar will explore findings from new research on this unprecedented restriction of movement from the perspective of businesses and the environment.

The panel will discuss the environmental benefits weighted against the mental health issues from teleworking. The panel will also talk through how managers can best leverage the benefits of working from home while managing potential risks.
