The Threats to Workers’ Mental Health and Privacy Posed By Teleworking
Mohamed Selim, the founder of MSC², is a renowned behavioral healthcare professional having more than twenty years of experience. He addressed the mental health and privacy issues caused by teleworking post-pandemic. He urged the government to take preventive measures against technostress to tackle workers’ mental health issues stemming from over-connection.
Mohamed Selim recognizes the benefits of working from home, which include autonomy and increased flexibility but at the same time warns of the significant mental health risks. During his recent talk, Mohamed Selim talked about the health concerns arising from over-connection that is not only smearing the lines between private life and work life but also imposing an increased risk of higher technostress – the stress caused by increased work intensity.
“Due to work-from-home, the stress linked to work-related technology use has increased manifold, and it is posing a serious threat to workers’ mental health, ” said Mohamed Selim, the holistic health specialist and life coach. “In addition to health issues, teleworking has given rise to serious privacy issues that also need to be addressed for the better mental health of the workforce.”
According to Mohamed Selim, the technology-enabled control and surveillance through software and AI tools companies use to monitor their workers’ progress remotely and performance in real time threaten the worker’s right to privacy. “A large number of companies are violating their workers’ personal space causing them additional stress and mental health issues,” explained Mohamed Selim. “We also need to look into the impact of the shift to teleworking on the mental health of those at risk of digital exclusion.”
The founder of MSC² urged the authorities to focus on the digital divide in the USA to ensure that all workers have a sufficient level of digital skills. To do so, the government has to draft a thorough mental health strategy and a national action plan addressing all these concerns. Mohamed Selim also requested the government regulate digital work to protect mental health, cooperate with employers and workers’ representatives, and ensure all workers have the “effective right to disconnect”.
The mental health of every individual is at the core of every workplace culture. All the stakeholders should work together to cope with mental health problems so that early intervention and early re-integration of our workers into the labor market are possible.
