Hi Folks' I need your help in making one of the PPT for WFH as future norm in India
1. Statistics industry wise who opted WFH as future norm
2. Advantages / Disadvantages
3. Challenges / How to overcome these challenges
4. How to ensure that productivity will not go down.


I am in the field of higher education in technical fields. My response is as follows.

1. WFH is a compulsion, it is not an option. It has been necessitated by the circumstances and unless you are able to adapt, it will become difficult to survive. In my establishment of nearly 100 employees all are working from home. (100%)

2. Apart from cost, space utilisation, family time, work-life balance, quality of work life, the advantage I am able to see is the realisation of importance of human relationships, particularly in families. When one is forced to spend more than a month confined to the four corners of limited space, the realisation of family relation, be it between spouses, between parents & children, between siblings or with the grand parents has definitely led to more understanding and appreciation of each other.

As regards disadvantages, there is a need to relate to a wider world that is being missed, a lot of misapprehension as fake news grips the lives. There is a lurking fear that something worse is going to happen.

3. It is only the compu-savy generation that has been able to adapt themselves to the needs of the time. Others have not been able to cope up with the sudden unexpected crisis

4. In these times, managements have to think out of the box to devise new ways and means to keep the productivity up. There are no standard measures or text book solutions to this crisis. All industries need to invent themselves

Dear friend,

Many a times certain words sounds good to hear but in realty it is harsh. Would you answer me one question, why now all industries and business houses are worried on fled of workmen from place of work to their home, when 'Work from Home' has remained as a solution?

We are in field of construction work of roads, factories, railways, dam and many more things. Can this work of concreting, excavating, compacting,testing,dozing,curing and may more activities where number of engineers have been engaged at project site for supervision, suggestion and monitoring work on progress, whether this work can be done from remote without presence.

The WFH is an option in compulsion for limited activities but not for all. If WFH is an option, why then all medical staffs are on hospitals should have operate from home instead of putting their life in danger.

The option of WFH is limited to certain activities to certain extent only. For example, we paid our 75000 staff salary for the month of March & April and preparation of bills & payments to different vendors/contractors done by 'Operating from Home' by less than 1% staff strength. Whereas all our project activities remained nonfunctional and 99% of total staff remained idle either at home or stranded in different project site generating any revenue for the company.

Hope this illustration would help you to understand the things in better way.
