    Concern about inactivity of homeworkers

    Employees working from home have spent on average more time working behind a computer screen since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic than before the outbreak. They also spend more time sitting, as found in research conducted by research institute TNO. From a health perspective, it is worrying that people currently sit more frequently than before the coronavirus outbreak.

    Stand-up desk

    89% of homeworkers spend at least six hours a day sitting behind a computer screen. The average is almost eight hours per day. This means that many homeworkers spend even (many) more hours sitting and staring at a computer screen. The percentage of employees working from home who frequently perform repeated motions has almost doubled. Often, the facilities required to create an ergonomic home office are missing. It its therefore interesting that the number of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) complaints has not yet increased. The question is, if this remains the case. Your organization can encourage employee to alternate working in a seated position with working in a standing position, for example by providing stand-up desks. Moreover, emphasize the need for your employees to take breaks, as working from home has caused people to take fewer breaks.
