There are many benefits to remote work for cancer patients and survivors. As the workplace has shifted over the last two years in response to the coronavirus, there are more remote or hybrid opportunities than ever before. But this shift is also, culturally and individually, a radical evolution from what many of us are used to.
To help ease this transition and set you up for success in a remote environment, Cancer and Careers has released our newest publication: Survival Guide: Balancing Remote Work and Cancer.
This publication is available in English and Spanish, for download or to order in print from the Publications section of our website.
Within, we identify key issues to be mindful of and how to manage them in a way that works best for you, such as:
Setting Up your Remote Workspace
Remote work may involve working from your own living space. How you setup your workspace can be vitally important to your mental and physical well-being. Similarly, there may be specific equipment that could help manage side-effects or assist with focus within your space. We also discuss how you might approach your employer for assistance.
Communicating Effectively & Establishing Boundaries
Drawing clear boundaries between your work life and your personal life, when working out of your own home, can be key to reducing stress, having a positive experience at work, and being able to leave work behind at the end of the day. There can also be different standards of communication between an in-person workplace and an all-virtual workplace that might require extra effort, new skills and some getting used to.
Disclosure & Privacy in an Online Workspace
What you share, and to whom, regarding your diagnosis should always be a personal decision. But in a virtual workplace, there are many ways you might never have even considered that your private health information could accidentally be shared. Here we highlight essential steps to maintain your privacy.
