Seminar "Adopting Telework: The causal impact of working from home on subjective wellbeing during the Covid-19 lockdown"
IOS-IZA-HSE University International Labor Seminar was held on November 30, 2021.
Speaker: Guillaume Gueguen (Paris School of Economics)
Title: Adopting Telework: The causal impact of working from home on subjective wellbeing during the Covid-19 lockdown
We uncover a positive effect of work from home on life satisfaction, especially for men and those without children at home. Concerning mental health, the impact is initially negative, but progressively turns positive as people adapt to this new situation. Most of these positive effects are driven by partnered people, as opposed to singles who suffer from transiting to telework. Joint research with Claudia Senik (Paris Schoolof Economics, Sorbonne University and IZA).
The seminar was organized in the framework of a research grant funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (grant ID: 075-15-2020-928).
Seminar was held online via Zoom.
