Abstract

COVID-19 is a pandemic with profound public health consequences both in terms of morbidity and
mortality and hence demands urgent action for people‘s health, also an unprecedented challenge for our
economy. Predominantly the consequences of the pandemic for industrial and corporate sectors are
unpredictable. Economists are convinced that we are heading for a significant economic downturn;
adapting prompt measures to sustain the economy, and ultimately our nation. One such measure Covid-19
pandemic has enforced on us is the 'Work from Home' (WFH) model. This has become officially
mandatory and strictly enforced rule in the post covid-19 era, which is emerging from all sectors, viz.,
from Information Technology to teaching sectors. WFH concept is new to majority of the employees, as
the COVID 19 has forced almost all the employees of all the sectors to work from home for the first time.
Remote working conditions and adoption of digital channels have expanded the surface of industries,
making any remote access possible with new techniques and technology. As the workforce is
experiencing new environment, this paper attempts to address the benefits and drawbacks of the
employees working from home when compared to Working in office. The study found that benefits of
working from home is entirely dependent on relaxed space at home, presence of their loved ones at home,
quiet ambience at home and uninterrupted internet connectivity. Most of the respondents are also of
opinion that, they do prefer to “Work FromAnywhere”.
