MetadataShow full item record
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant changes in various aspects of life, including in the work system, where the government's policy in preventing COVID-19 is working from home (WFH). The new work culture faced by every employee, especially female employees, has its challenges in completing office tasks at home. This has a positive impact, but also a negative impact on the office and employee performance. With exploratory case studies and qualitative methods to get information, we are ambitious to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the WFH concept during COVID-19. We applied respondents to eight female employees who married and had children. They are employees in the Bina Marga Division (Region II National Road Implementation Unit, East Kalimantan Province). For confidentiality, it gave respondents the initial 'R'. Through interview techniques and questionnaires developed based on supporting literature, WFH has provided tangible evidence for them. The advantages in question are more flexible times and minimize the transmission of COVID-19. Meanwhile, the drawback lies in the excessive workload, and there is a drastic decrease in motivation to complete office work, which results in performance degradation.
