Women who worked from home during the pandemic suffered from more mental health problems than their male counterparts.

Employers were the big winners with new research showing employees were more productive and less distracted when working remotely.

The figures contained in the UCD Working in Ireland Survey 2021 which forms part of the NERI Labour Market Conference found that 43 per cent of women suffered from impaired mental health.

Co-author of the report Dr Maria Belizón, Assistant Professor of Human Resource Management at UCD said mothers with young children attending primary school also suffered.
