Local and national COVID-19 restrictions have caused many organizations to transition their employees to working remotely, a practice previously not considered or widely adopted. Global pandemics happen so infrequently that much of the world's population has not lived through or experienced such an event. There were little to no protocols to prepare organizations and individuals mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially for the challenges that the pandemic would bring. The COVID-19 pandemic provided a unique opportunity for more employees who previously did not have that opportunity to work from home. This shift created a much larger sample size to study the effectiveness and impacts that telecommuting has. This study discusses the benefits and negative aspects of work from home and its implications on organizations, employees, and organizational behavior. The study established that telecommuting provides many benefits to both the employees and organizations, but the negative aspects need to be acknowledged and addressed to remain a successful practice.
