Workers laud working from home as the way forward
Workers from both the public and private sector believe the work from home (WFH) option would benefit them in the long run.
In June last year, it was reported that most workers prefer to keep the WFH option after the MCO is lifted, based on a survey by KPMG Malaysia, an audit, tax and advisory services firm.
The survey found that 69% agreed that WFH should continue post-MCO as part of the new normal, while 56% of business owners supported it.
However, 64% of respondents faced challenges while WFH, mainly network issues (61%), communication barriers (14%), and lack of technology readiness (10%).
