What is work from home?
Work-From-Home (WFH) is a set-up where employees work from their homes. Usually, working from home requires a laptop, a stable internet connection, VoIP, and other tools at home to do an employee’s work properly.
Most roles for WFH do not require physical interaction, such as in graphic design, accounting, and bookkeeping. Tech companies, meanwhile, use this to save on resources such as office space, equipment, and infrastructure. When a calamity occurs such as a hurricane or a pandemic, a WFH arrangement is also ideal for business continuity.
Work from home arrangement
As part of a flexible work arrangement, a WFH setup is agreed upon by the employer and the employee. Depending on the agreement, they can render WFH on certain days or full time. The employer may also provide equipment (laptop, high-speed connection, phone, and headset) for those who don’t have these at home.
WFH employees collaborate with their teammates through different tools for task management, scheduling, and video conferencing.
