Working from Home: Pros & Cons and Different Arrangements

Feb 28, 2020 25 Min Read

Despite initial opinions, flexible work arrangements such as working from home and remotely are continuing on from the third quarter of 2020 and even into the fourth quarter of the year. If the workforce and organisations are to remain agile in their respective industries, it is important to recognise the SWOT factors of working from home or remote working. 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of working from home or remote working for the workforce and organisations as a whole? 

Our surveys unveil quantitative and qualitative insights from both company leaders and working individuals in different parts of the world. With our insights and other compiled research, we produced a series of white papers on the theme of working from home. In this last white paper, we mention Necole as a unique solution for fulfilling employees’ learning needs - helping them stay relevant and engaged no matter where they are. Furthermore, we discuss Leadership 52 as curated content that enables individuals to develop certain leadership competencies that would propel them to step up and lead themselves. 

Lastly, we identify some examples of flexible working arrangements and also provide a step-by-step process of implementing working from home or remote working practices that goes in hand with a policy guide for such flexible work arrangements.
