Ep 071: Working at home, in the office or both?

Hello and welcome to episode 71 of My Pocket Psych, the podcast all about the psychology of the workplace.

Six months after lockdown hit the UK in any meaningful way, the push is on to get people back into the physical workplace. In this episode, we look at why this return to the office might be a source of anxiety for some employees and why some of the commentary about ‘back to work’ has been very unhelpful and inaccurate.
