Well, Covid!! Covid!! Covid !! Every now and then we
hear this word, in conversation with someone or around us or in
news....Ohhhhh God!! Sometimes you really want to take a deep breath and
want to say," Enough now pls leave us and go away. We really want to
have our normal lives back!! "..
I have 15 mins
conversation with my mom on Covid updates daily at night when we talk
and it has become a ritual actually. All of our lives have become so
uncertain and unpredictable these days, when we feel that
...ohhhh...nice, it has started moving after a long hault, then suddenly
lockdowns, one after the other. Life has got so imbalanced but to think
of it, that's how the nature of life is, uncertainty and change
everytime and always. And one major change - Work from home!!!
thanks to the technology, when all of us were zapped because we just
could not step out of our homes to the office because of Covid leading
to lockdown, the only solution to go on with life and survive was work
from home. And technology really helped us a lot in this major change
and transformation in our lives. Well, now in 2 years, all of us have
got so used to this , so called, ^ new work from home culture". What's
more to this is, many companies have starred setting up their offices
at home saving the huge cost of infrastructure and the travelling cost
of all the employees and saving the time too. The flexibility of work
from home for employees and the companies has really made life so much
better for everyone, where both also have more choice these days of
choosing various options like, now many people from pan India can apply
for the same role in different companies vis a vis companies also have
more choice of employees pan india.
yet, not to ignore the challenges as increasing physical and mental
health Issues due to constant working on phone and laptop for longer
hours and no social life. You are less connected to the nature and
hardly any exercise regime and discipline.
what's more is, it's so difficult to monitor the employees from home
which is really a huge challenge for a company these days , which are
still struggling to find a mechanism to monitor and motivate their
employees working from home.
share my experience here, one of my clients faced a real challenge with
its employee who was not sincere at all , not working at all, and
despite of so many efforts and time invested, in her,,they had to lay
her off finally, which was still a tough decision for the company but it
was becoming a liability.
recent report has shown , work from home and online is the future,
where you see , not even offices but the whole education system had to
be shifted online.

I really feel, life should always be a balance. Even if we are moving
towards virtual world, but we just cant ignore the importance of real
world, so to say, may be, we should have 3 days office and 3 days work
from home. The office environment and discipline is also important at
the same time.
