Working from Home

One opportunity presented by the Covid-19 pandemic is what is essentially the testing of working from home. Previously something employers would say impossible, it has been shown that working from one’s household can be as effective, if not more than in person. This means that work for people with disabilities and other things previously preventing working in person is now much more accessible, and may expose for some the problems found in their workplace, for example: workplace harassment, inaccessibility, anxiety etc. Of course, working from home isn’t for everyone; just as every person is different, so are their requirements. Some people thrive on social interaction, and find idea making easier bouncing them between their peers. Others find the ability to speak to others in person a necessity, not to mention the structure some find in most workplaces.

Overall, it has been learned that working from home can present more opportunities for people who may struggle with in person work.
