COVID-19 has impacted the way work is conducted across the globe. In this unprecedented pandemic, people, processes, and employers have had to re-assess the way work is conducted. However, it is also evident that these changes have not been applied throughout all the organizations. A sample of 150 employees comprising of 100 males and 50 females was collected from various organizations such as banks, retail, health care, information technology, and education. The sample was segregated according to gender and an independent samples t-test was performed to assess whether there is a statistically significant difference between them with respect to fourteen factors which may lead to workplace anxiety. These 14 factors were identified through a comprehensive review of literature. The results showcase that with respect to the factors of irritability, access to equipment and communication and communication tools are the areas where there is a statistically significant difference between male and female perceptions.
