I am from the hotel industry which has been people-centric from time immemorial; I could never imagine Work From Home for this industry. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we are exposed to many challenges and to deal with them we all are required to be keeping ourselves away from groups, in certain countries entire cities are locked down. When you are going through such times you are exposed to many new concerns. I live in a city where we are advised to WFM as a precaution and our organisation has been taking care of our people really well for which we all have a great sense of gratitude. Last two days I have been on WFH mode, for some industries and certain jobs it’s no big deal at all. But for professions like mine- I am a college professor and a trainer it is completely a new ball game. We haven’t ever worked from home; its a new experience and these two days have been like a clean slate that was waiting to be filled in. I have worked on some pointers for WFM for a first timer; this might come handy for all those who are new to this inevitable concept at the moment. Who knows some of these may end up becoming the way forward as they say, ‘Necessity is the mother of all inventions’! These guidelines will help build the discipline required for WFH.
