The onset of COVID-19 hastened the transition to remote work (RW) arrangements such as work from home (WFH). Many organizations, including Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, are permanently moving to hybrid models, with WFH becoming integral to organizational design. The benefits of WFH are well-documented, but so are its drawbacks. For instance, the negative cognitive impact of WFH on the remote worker has been widely acknowledged: mental health problems due to social isolation, digital fatigue, and difficulty in compartmentalizing work, among others.1 But the focus has been on the individual employee, and there is no systematic study on the challenges of WFH for organization design and governance.
