With the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic, various aspects significantly suffer from it, including industry. Accordingly, to avoid further coronavirus transmission, industries all over the globe start to allow mass-remote working.
Despite being an up to the minute topic, remote working never undergoes a massive trial as of today. Previously, various industries and studies have barely begun studying its efficacy and benefits.
Considering the prior trial-and-error, the effectiveness and efficiency of such practice are yet to be clear. Some studies indicate that the practice does not bring much difference, but the others suggest the opposite, the good and bad.
However, reacting to the current situation, there is no time for caution. Industries, whether they want it or not, have to sustain by forcing workers to work from home if possible. Business needs to run.
That being said, this will be the most massive work-from-home trial within an unpredictable duration. The results, therefore, will contribute to the future consideration of this brand new work culture.
Fighting Against Coronavirus, Industries Implement Remote Working
There are too many things to risk for by forcing employees to work in-house. Ranging from risking the health of the workers up to accelerating the spreading of the virus, the conventional practice possibly backfires.
The concern, additionally, disturbs industrial figures and leaders all over the world. Thus, remote working is permitted to prevent further coronavirus damage.
Companies have begun asking their workers to work from home. Gigantic companies such as Amazon, Google and Facebook have implemented the practice.
But companies are not the only sector participating in the movement. Recently, US government also considers to give remote working a chance.
Education sectors also conduct a similar practice. Some schools in Japan and Singapore, for instance, are taking a month, or more, off. In Indonesia, which just recently spotted its first case, universities and school are doing the same.
