Md. Asif Imrul, Maria Rafique, Md. Iftekharul Amin


This study investigates the effects of work-from-home on job performance and its mediating factors. This is certainly relevant in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak. While acknowledging the need of investigating employees' perspectives in order to create a productive work-from-home environment, this study focuses on the elements that influence job performance. It suggests job satisfaction and motivation as mediating variables to explain how working from home influences employee performance. The study's questionnaire-based data, which has been tailored to the changes caused by current pandemic, was acquired through multiple in-person and online survey of Bangladeshi employees. A total of 260 people actively participated in the assessment. In its further processing, the study utilized structural equation-based framework to address the research questions. In the study, employees reported more job satisfaction and motivation as a result of working from home, resulting in improved job performance. While the relevance of this study is constrained to how these advantages are manifested in Bangladesh, it may have external validity in other pandemic-affected nations.
