Corona virus pandemic outbreak: is this the end of the traditional office work ?



                      Work from Home ( WFH ) in coronavirus pandemic outbreak 


The coronavirus outbreak is first and foremost a human tragedy, affecting hundreds of thousands of people Globally. Due to this global novel virus, we are in our homes, maybe for months or even years. It's affecting our relationships, our health even workplace culture.
The " coronavirus outbreak"  was confirmed a pandemic by the World Health Organization. It's spreading more than 180 countries and affecting the lives of more than ـ200,000 people. Due to this pandemic, many global industries become paralysis; global companies have been forced to adopt new measures to survive. The coronavirus quarantine has attacked industries that have already proven to be vulnerable to trouble, possibly changing the global social order in irreversible ways, once consumers adjust to new ways of living.

What we observed rather experienced that due to coronavirus outbreak companies forced to shift to remote working policy or " Work from Home "(WFH ) for their employees People already experienced of working from home, the majority of them wouldn't mind if they didn't have to go back to the office.
An IBM survey has been found that 54 per cent of the 25,000 adults polled liked for primarily work from home and 75 per cent liked the option to do it occasionally. Once businesses will reopen, 40 per cent of people responded that they feel strongly their employer should offer for remote working options.
More than 1 million people in the U.S. have tested positive for a new coronavirus according news. At least 65,735 people have died, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation projected up to 114,228 people could die by August 4.

As per latest news of Indian news channel today (Thursday), the nationwide tally of COVID-19 cases neared 55,000 with several urban centers including Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Chennai reporting rising numbers of people have tested positive for the deadly virus infection, while the count of those who have recovered also crossed 15,000.
More than 5,000 new cases have been detected across the country since Wednesday morning, figures announced by different states and union territories showed. The nationwide death toll also rose to 1,783, while fatalities were also reported from paramilitary forces.




Keeping aside the serious health implications of this outbreak, the coronavirus epidemic has, in an unconventional way, also amplified a debate over the future of work. We know millions of people across the world working from home due to this outbreak. 


Now question is: whether this is the end of the traditional office work?


Maybe the coronavirus pandemic will not directly and indirectly responsible to destroy the traditional working process in office buildings, but it has certainly forced a major global "work-from-home" workout.  Millions of people have been working from home since early February, and the number is growing rapidly.


Global public companies may encourage and ultimately asked their employees to work from home, and promoted “work from home” atmosphere throughout the ecosystem. The coronavirus pandemic may also have caused a spike in the number of remote employees, giving companies the flexibility to acquire exceptional talent with few geographic limits, while avoiding the significant overhead costs associated with office buildings and supplies.
