Purpose: The aim of the article is to present the results of the study that was planned and performed to check the sense of well-being of employees working at home. Design/Methodology/Approach: To this end, the approach of the management of organizations from various industries in terms of organizing work during the SARS-Cov2 pandemic was verified, and employees were asked about their work from home, attitude to this type of work, their housing and other possibilities. The study used the CAWI computer-assisted diagnostic survey method. The research tool was a self-questionnaire. The questionnaires in the period from 12 to 21 November 2020 were completed by a total of 95 respondents (77 women and 18 men) aged 18 to 59. Findings: The results, although statistically insignificant, showed that almost 75% of the respondents could work at home, but as many as 49% of respondents do not have a permanent place of work, but perform duties at home where it is possible. Despite the fact that the pandemic has forced the transfer of work home for fear of the safety of employees, this solution brings with it new problems in terms of ensuring the health and well-being of employees working remotely. Practical Implications: The conclusions drawn based on the analyzes support the search for a new path to support their employees' organizations in achieving a sense of mental and physical well-being. Originality/Value: This study is part of the research presented in two papers and exploring important and very topical problem of impact of pandemic on health and well-being.
