Crucial changes needed to protect workers’ health while teleworking

New analysis from the ILO and WHO sets out recommendations for safe and productive hybrid and teleworking.

Among the benefits, the report says, are improved work-life balance, opportunities for flexible working hours and physical activity, reduced traffic and commuting time, and a decrease in air pollution – all of which can improve physical and mental health and social wellbeing. Teleworking can also lead to higher productivity and lower operational costs for many companies.
