Work from home should be a choice at all times

As most of the companies these days are changing their approach and style of working, it is time that company's look for ways where employees can work smart and not hard (Work from home for vulnerable employees in UAE: All you need to know; KT, March 13). The ongoing health crisis is only making the situation worse but we need to ensure that the business does not stop. During such crisis, option should be given to employees to work remotely from home as long as they have a laptop and a phone.

体育竞彩网Companies are catching onto the trend and most have the wherewithal to work from home. It's changing the way we work especially in the tech sphere. Employers may actually save money and increase productivity through online work.

体育竞彩网Work from home has benefits. It saves time wasted during commutes, traffic hurdles, saves resources for companies and individuals. Most importantly we can prevent spreading of virus.

But there are challenges too. When it comes to a company's work from home policy, everyone is unique. Productivity levels depend on the work style of employees. But that shouldn't discourage employers from offering this choice to their employees.

I hope employers realise this and allow their employees to work from home now and later.
