Canadians Working from Home Feel Lonely, Fear Becoming Fat

Canadians who work from home often miss the office and worry about becoming overnight from constant snacking.

According to research by global workplace provider Regus, 37% of Canadian home workers “get lonely” while 65% miss mixing with their peers in person.

31% of them are afraid of becoming overweight as they snack throughout the day.

40% of these workers say that their family members take their work less seriously when they work from home, and sometimes even resent that they have sectioned-off a space in the family home.

Working from a fully-functional environment, instead of a makeshift space at home, offers professionals who work remotely the chance to interact with other professionals, Regus says.
