A new study by the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, together with the University of Technology Sydney and the University of Sydney, has uncovered that productivity did not decrease while working from home in pyjamas during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it was linked to poorer mental health. 

According to the study, 41% of respondents said they experienced increased productivity while working from home, while more than a third of respondents reported that working from home resulted in poorer mental health. 

When the study examined the effects wearing pyjamas had on productivity and mental health, it found that wearing pyjamas was associated with more frequent reporting of poorer mental health. 59% of participants who wore pyjamas during the day at least one day a week, admitted their mental health declined while working from home, versus 26% of participants who did not wear pyjamas while working from home. 

The stats reflect our own survey which we carried out back in June 2020 where the majority of respondents were more productive WFH.  We here at Blue Saffron have a few tips which everyone in the company tries to live by to make working from home more effective.
