The more flexibility an employee can work into their day the more effective they will be in achieving work-life balance in a Work From Home environment.
Experts on workplace cultures and employee engagement advise corporate leadership to stay curious and flexible when it comes to Work From Home (WFH) measures because what worked during 2020’s COVID-19 pandemic scenarios may not work in 2021’s scenarios. Flexibility regarding schedules and deadlines leads to fewer disruptions to the overall team in a WFH environment.
But what measures can individual team members take to ensure working from home does not overwhelm them or lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness? Such measures are especially important as increasing numbers of employees want the option to continue working from home once the dust settles from the pandemic. Or they would like to follow a hybrid workplace strategy, where they can both work at home and go into the office during the work week.
“We are surveying HR people who say they are going to be much more open to flexible scheduling to allow people to work from home a few days a week,” says Andy Challenger, senior vice president, Challenger, Gray and Christmas Inc., a global outplacement firm.

Challenger stresses that leadership in organizations understand the world is still operating in a crisis because of the pandemic. “We are still in an emergency. People are really being flexible around their work schedules right now; employees shouldn’t be afraid to ask for additional flexibility.”
