McAfee paper: Reducing employee stress through digital wellness
This paper from McAfee alludes to data from the HR Research Institute’s survey on Digital Wellness that was fielded in 2023, in partnership with McAfee, the global computer security software company.
The survey had 204 respondents from a wide range of industry verticals, all of them being HR professionals from large organisations (at least 1,000 employees) in the United States.
The research found:
- The majority (96%) agree or strongly agree that the increase in remote and hybrid work has made digital wellness more important in their organisations.
- More than seven in 10 HR professionals say more than half of their employees rely on personal devices for work purposes, raising concerns about exposing the organisation’s confidential information.
- Nearly two-fifths (39%) of respondents believe a digital wellness solution improves employee safety and wellbeing to a high or very high (47%) degree.
The paper concludes by outlining several digital wellness practices to help address stress caused by technology.
