Few studies have been conducted recently on the effects of working from home on one's mental health. It's also debatable whether or if older literature was up-to-date before the current Covid-19 outbreak. The growing trend of people working from home is a golden chance to explore this topic in depth. Crawford et al. (2011) did a study to shed light on the lack of literature connecting remote employment and health. This study's overarching goal is to fill this knowledge vacuum by gathering and analysing information from a variety of sources on remote workers and the effects of this trend on their well-being from three distinct angles: social, economic, and psychological. both the social and physical contexts.

Data was collected using a qualitative methodology, specifically, semi-structured interviews. 12 HR employees participated in this research. They all had worked remotely prior covid part-time and since covid it's been full time The researchers used semi-structured interviews to have a better grasp on how remote workers' experiences affect their well-being because of the delicate nature of the subject matter. Microsoft Office Themes were used to record and transcribe the interviews.

To achieve this study's research objectives, thematic analysis was used to establish five overarching themes. When drawing conclusions, we drew on the good and negative effects of remote work on people's health and happiness. Due to the current Covid 19 pandemic, faceto-face interviews within the same organisation were not possible, which is a limitation of our study. It is doubtful, because of the unknown future, that this study really reflects the current state of affairs.
