Working from home (WFH) became the new normal in 2020 and remains a global phenomenon.
The authors analyze the impact of WFH from both an employee and employer perspective, and within the context of the UN’s sustainable development goals.
They explore conflicts between work and home life, motivation, loneliness, profitability, resilience, and innovation. They ask how remote employees can be managed, mentored, or appraised, and how they can find role models.
Chapters include the romanticization of WFH, a case study of shared leadership in Vienna, and WFH among start-ups in India.
This is an essential read not just for scholars and students of management, but also for those from the domains of psychology and sociology, and also for policy makers.
