Abstract

The coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis required the workforce to work from home (WFH) during the lockdowns.  Aligning the staff for work-from-home (WFH) schedules requires proper human resource planning for employee satisfaction and continued organizational performance.  The paper provides empirical evidence on an institutional study on employee satisfaction and performance while working from home. Also, other variables on ICT usage and internet accessibility formed the foundations for further discussions on workforce alignment. Recommendations on the viability of WFH after the pandemic crisis will be described.

Keywords: telework; digital and agile workforce; work performance; digital government
