If you work from home, it may not be the best for your health… at least that’s what the researchers say. According to a research report from the United Nations, people who work from home experience higher levels of stress, isolation and insomnia. 

The report states that 41% of people who use smartphones, laptops and other devices to regularly work from home experience higher levels of stress, compared to just 25% of those who work alongside work colleagues at an employer’s premises. 

However, this report was conducted overseas. Therefore, Leroy decided to take a survey on air to uncover whether these facts are indeed true here in Melbourne. 

Have a listen as Leroy unpacks the research report, and a few listeners who have worked from home share their experiences.
