post covid working from home
There is no doubt that the post Covid era will be a whole new ball game for the service sector.
In the last two years, people had difficulty in adjusting to the Work From Home model but now that the majority of the population is adjusted to the system, they seem to have found their comfort in it and many of them refuse to again go back to the offices and start from there.
Apart from the comfort, another factor here is Work LIfe Balance.

The survey stated, “The second wave has impacted every employee, every family in some way or the other, making us realise the importance of staying close to our loved ones, making flexibility a key task from employees today.”
And they also added that the employees want flexibility not just in terms of locations but also time and their job role. Organisation will now have to make efforts to ensure flexibility at work places. Another important finding of the survey was improved work life balance. This is something that even the employers have been working towards especially during the pandemic but the workers hope to continue with concepts introduced for the metal and physical being by their companies even after the pandemic. More than 49 percent of people asked for practices such as ‘zero hour’, ‘no meeting Fridays’ and ‘care leaves’ and ‘silent hours’ to continue
