Working from Home and Alcohol Use

This study examined the associations between working at home and alcohol consumption. Using data from a pre-COVID-19 sample, information was collected between 2004 and 2019 from a large cross-sectional sample of Norwegian employees.  Working at home greater than 15 hours per week was significantly associated with alcohol use, and that association remained significant after adjusting for age, gender, leadership position, and educational level. Working at home was found to reduce the likelihood for work-related social support, thereby facilitating the use of more dysfunctional coping strategies, such as alcohol use, to alleviate distress.
