NAIROBI, FRIDAY, 27TH MARCH 2020: Leading human resource and recruitment firm Corporate Staffing Services today released in-depth research on remote working amid the Covid-19 pandemic in Kenya.
The report titled The COVID-19 pandemic and the Kenyan workplace is based on research conducted among 1,830 employees from various sectors in the country. The report shows that over 65.5% of employers have implemented the presidential directive to allow employees work from home.
Corporate staffing also carried out the study on 258 employers in a bid to find out the effect of remote working on work productivity.
Trust issues between workers and their bosses and lack of supervision are among worries that managers expressed as the hiccup in the implementation of remote working.
However, in spite of such teething problems, nearly three-quarters of the employers said they would like to entrench the work-from-home culture in their organizations once the novel Coronavirus pandemic is over.
Overall, the survey revealed that work-life after the pandemic will undoubtedly never be the same.
Corporate Staffing Services Managing Partner, Perminus Wainaina noted that to ensure an easy transition to remote working, there is need for proper training not only on the technical i.e how to use the gadgets but also skills such as discipline. There’s also need to ensure that there is infrastructure to support employees.
