“Work from home” refers to a work arrangement where an employee can work remotely from their home or any other location outside of the traditional office setting. This is made possible by modern technology such as the internet, video conferencing, email, and cloud-based collaboration tools.
Work from home can offer several benefits to both employees and employers, including increased flexibility, improved work-life balance, reduced commuting time and costs, and potential cost savings for the employer on office space and other overhead expenses.
However, there can also be challenges associated with remote work, such as difficulty in maintaining work-life boundaries, reduced social interaction, and potential distractions at home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend towards remote work, as many organizations have shifted to a work-from-home model to comply with social distancing guidelines and ensure employee safety.
