Has the way you have worked during the pandemic affected your mental health or your desire to change jobs or seek promotion?

workingmums.co.uk’s survey of over 1,300 working mums shows some significant differences between those worked from home permanently before Covid, those who worked from home due to Covid and may continue to work in a hybrid way and those who did not work from home.

Those who didn’t work from home during Covid were more likely to say their mental health had deteriorated [69% said this compared to 66% of those who shifted to homeworking and 64% of those who had been working from home before Covid]. Could this be in part due to the support offered by their employer? The survey showed only 16% of those who didn’t work from home felt their employer offered support when it came to their mental health compared to 32% of those who shifted to homeworking and 24% of those who had worked from home before.

Promotion

Those who worked outside the home also said they were less likely to seek promotion as a result of Covid – 33% compared to 28% of those who had worked from home before and 25% of those who shifted to homeworking. They were also more likely to say they were looking for another job as a result of Covid – 27% compared to 26% of those who had worked from home before and 21% of those who shifted to homeworking during the pandemic.

And they were much less likely to aspire to senior leadership – 35% said they aspired to senior leadership, compared to 51% of those who had worked from home before Covid and 53% of those who shifted to homeworking during the pandemic.

Plans after Covid

Those who had worked from home permanently before Covid were significantly more likely to say they would not change how they worked after Covid – 41% compared to 34% of those who were not able to work from home. They were also much more likely to say they had turned down a job due to a lack of flexible working – 69% compared to 53% of those who had shifted to homeworking during the pandemic and 46% of those who did not work from home.
