Remote working and in(security): The impact of pandemic-driven remote working on employee wellbeing, the psychological contract and cyber security

Remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, a great impact on the workforce.

Focusing on the transition to remote working, cyber security, the psychological contract (relationship between employees and employers) and employee wellbeing, the research highlighted several key themes.
