In 2018 members of the course team (Prof Marc Jones, Dr Liz Braithwaite, Visiting Prof Andy McCann) worked as a part of a team with Nuffield health to review the literature on remote-working and the link to stress, wellbeing and productivity. The end product was a white paper summarising the literature and providing guidelines for organisations. Have a read of the white paper and consider whether anything mentioned has relevance to your working environment.

Based on your own experiences and what you have observed from the organisations you have been a part of what are the main challenges in remote-working? What do you see as the main benefits of remote working? Is there a specific number of days remote working per week that you think is ideal for your working environment?
