Addressing the “Unseens”: Digital Wellbeing in the Remote Workplace
The ubiquity of sophisticated devices, along with uninterrupted access to the Internet and organizational computerized systems, allows for the "anyplace" workplace to be established. Technology has the potential to deliberately or inadvertently impact psychological wellbeing. Specific psychological demands are inadvertently imposed on remote employees whose permanent online presence is required. Hence, it is important to understand factors affecting digital wellbeing and steps that can be taken to maximize the wellbeing of remote employees. This paper provides suggestions for future research on studying the digital wellbeing of (fully or partially) remote employees. A research framework is proposed to demonstrate the different levels of analysis at which digital wellbeing could be explored and studied.
