“Anyone who wears sweatpants, has lost control of their life.”
But what is it really like? Do all home office workers really wear proper clothes, or at least most of them for video conferences only from the waist up?
How employees cope with home office and how home office work affects their health was investigated by mhplus health insurance and SDK Süddeutsche Krankenversicherung in the joint study “Healthy Home Office” (the study is available in German here).
Through this study, the assumption of “sloppy work clothes” could be at least partially debunked. 41 percent of the study participants wear the same clothes in the home office as they do in the company.
