Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic, which is still ongoing until now, has resulted in workers being required to work from home or remotely. This condition has an impact on the mental, physical and behavioral health conditions of workers due to the change from the WFO system to the work WFH. This study aims to identify work stress factors during WFH among workers at PT. X. The research method used is a quantitative study with cross-sectional. The total population of this study were PT.X workers who had done WFH with a total of 924 people. The sampling technique used Stratified Random Sampling and the number of samples obtained 87 workers. The independent variables analyzed the variables of work conditions, work environment, and the environment outside of work. Measurement of work stress levels used the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12). Statistical analysis used Chi-square test and logistic regression analysis. The results showed that there was a relationship between the external environment (P-value = 0.008) (Sig = 0.006) and behavior changes when working at home. In this study, PT.X workers experienced behavior changes due to the unfavorable relationship between the external environment of the workers.
