  London: Psychologists from the University of Central Lancashire in Preston found that "teleworkers" - those who worked from home - suffered by being isolated from "the hustle and bustle" of the office and found it hard to concentrate away from the office environment. Home-workers missed the company of their colleagues, the interaction of other employees and even the tensions that often occurred at the office. As part of their study, researchers studied a group of national newspaper journalists who worked at the office and another group who were allowed to work at home after going to the office for years.
