Work From Home Burnout Impacting American Workers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The coronavirus pandemic has forced millions of Americans to work from home. It may have been a nice break at first, but it’s turned into work from home burnout for some. The National Bureau of Economic Research estimated in July that working from home adds nearly 49 minutes to the average person’s work day.

One solution is shorter work weeks. Elephant Ventures CEO Art Shectman says, “A four day week also helps you create a clear boundary between work and life and helps restore some of that balance for folks when you work from home, and then the added productivity benefit of having a much earlier start.”
