Companies that have embraced the bold step of implementing Work From Home (WFH) convey to their employees that they are trusted and valued in their organisation, no matter the location of their work.
 
Micromanaging of these WFH employees therefore, would not be the most effective method of managing their performance. This program considers the challenges both managers and employees face in WFH arrangement and provides framework to meeting performance expectations whilst ensuring work-life balance.
 
During the recent Covid19 Movement Control Order (MCO), WFH frequently asked questions include:-
•Are employees expected to be online and available anytime during WFH?
•Should employers or employees enforce the work hours (eg.9am-5pm) strictly?
•Does employee have right to take time off eg. for breaks and meals or family matters?
•What are employer’s expectations and employees accountabilities for performance?
•Does WFH monitor Productivity or Performance?
