Since mid-March, home has taken on a new role in many of our lives. It has become the office, school and primary entertainment source during the pandemic. And with Gov. Mike DeWine advising 50,000 state employees to expect to work from home through the end of the year, and many large corporations following suit, it looks like the atypical work-life balance will stay this way for the unforeseeable future.
On top of working 40+ hours per week, employees are also supervising online or hybrid school for their children and in some cases, taking care of an elderly parent. If people aren’t aware of how to monitor everyone’s mental health in the household, they could face much bigger challenges than looking good on a Zoom call.
