The epidemic of coronavirus has made it mandatory for remote employees to work overnight. Over the last several weeks, many Indian businesses have forced their staff to work from home to socially isolate people and minimize the spread of Covid-19. Last week, and probably in the coming weeks, the majority of big corporations, including Apple, Google, and Amazon, asked workers to work from home to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Although the immediate health advantages of avoiding rising workspaces are visible in the face of a terrifying pandemic.

But why have Indian businesses been waiting for a pandemic to follow a trend that has many advantages for both workers and employers? When lots of benefits altogether come with working from home, as everyone has their own physical and mental space, and since then we have noticed that there is a better quality of ideas coming up. Digital presence has its kind of serendipity that does not require physical presence; digital presence makes a co-worker s time even more precious

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the lives of billions of people worldwide. Many businesses both large and small have closed their doors, urging their employees to work remotely to avoid potential infection. For many workers, having the flexibility of being able to work from home has been a dream they have pursued for a long time.

Some key findings from 2022 WFH (US) statistics: Credit Summit

  • 58% of the American workforce have the opportunity to work remotely. 

  • Productivity in remote work has increased by 47%

  • By 2025, 70% of the US workforce will be working remotely.

There are many benefits of working from home during COVID-19

Increase in Productivity

Companies are certainly catching onto the trend and most of them have the flexibility to work from home, if not at all times, at least when needed. It is changing the way we operate, particularly in the field of technology. And while it may not be for everybody, employers can find that they can save money and improve productivity for certain employees. And for certain workers, home-based compensation can be the difference. Thus higher productivity has been repeatedly cited by professionals who work remotely.

Location is not an issue anymore

Employers can tap talent anywhere in the world as their workforce is not located-. Diversity— which many businesses see as an advantage to their workforce — can also expand more easily

Deal with distractions well

Anyone working from home has less social interaction which will lead to less distraction and higher concertation on their work. Better morale among employees with less turnover, lower absenteeism, and greater engagement is a likely outcome, even with part-time work-from-home allowances.

Adapting a new normal

Online work has been on the rise for many years, and the COVID-19 pandemic will show the benefits and challenges of house-based work for several businesses that may not have considered it an option. Many populations, particularly neurodivergent individuals, may benefit from remote work both professionally and mentally.

If you are working from home for the first time, and you are in a near-panic, you are not alone. Just about every remote worker has been through what you are going through. Get the courage to know that you are going to get through this difficult first stage and achieve success sooner than you think.

Good Luck!
