Working From Home: Overcoming Challenges & Developing Ways to Success

By Leaderonomics Editorial|01-07-2020 | 30 Min Read

In the first white paper, we discussed the concept of working from home - how it has evolved over the years especially in the Western world and how this is now a growing trend in Malaysia and other Asian countries such as Singapore.

Our second white paper discussed the new reality of remote working and highlighted processes and structures to consider when making a shift into remote working. In our subsequent paper, we talked about the new ways that organisations need to explore and adapt in relation to employee engagement in this new normal.

In this new edition, we identify the challenges of working from home or remote working - especially for countries that are unprepared for these new ways of working. What are the challenges and how can we develop effective practices to address these?

To understand better how the individual workforce perceives working from home, Leaderonomics conducted the following surveys:

  • Employees’ Perspective on WFH
  • Business Owners’ & C-Suites’ Perspective on WFH


Based on the surveys’ analyses and other research evidence, a series of topics is being produced with the aim of providing individual employees and organisations with better understanding of the relatively new concept, identifying best practices for effective working from home, and other related challenges. In addition to insights from these two surveys, we will also be referring to responses that we had collected from survey questions produced from a variety of webinars we conducted over the last few months.
