Working from Home – a Curse or a Blessing in Disguise?

June 22, 2020

In an attempt to flatten the Covid-19 pandemic curve, governments have been forced to take severe measures; ranging from a total lockdown of the country, to curfews, stay at home orders and, the one I personally dislike the most, social distancing because I like to hug people.

Part of coping and ensuring “business as usual”, many companies have, as far as practically possible, retorted to allowing employees to work from home (WFH). WFH became commonplace in the 1970’s. However, it is only now that advances in technology such as the internet and devices like smartphones and laptops, have enabled the culture of WFH.
