Working from home (WFH)

A trend that became popular during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for office workers whose workplaces were closed. Although not feasible for employees in some sectors such as retailing and manufacturing, office workers were able to use technology such as video conferencing to work from home. Evidence did not suggest a significant impact on productivity, and as the pandemic subsided, hybrid working became common where employees work some days from home and some in the office.
