Global property & casualty insurer Chubb recently conducted a survey of American workers to see how they’re faring while working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The results show that most have managed to remain productive, working the same or more hours per day and staying connected with friends, family and colleagues.

When the pandemic subsides, a large majority (74%) said they want to work from home more frequently in the future.

But signs of strain are showing. The survey, entitled ‘Resilient, Committed, Engaged and Worried: The Experiences and Risks of Americans Working from Home During COVID–19,’ revealed that many are struggling to find the right work/life balance in the work-from-home environment.

There have also been declines in mental health, physical health (largely due to poor ergonomics in home workstations and unhealthy habits like snacking, eating and drinking more), and financial wellbeing.
