However, employees still report some opposition from management and their organizations, which indicates a separation between the two. “That`s a good thing, because the majority of respondents want to continue working from home on certain days of the week.” “The current COVID 19 pandemic has forced the majority of organizations to work remotely, including Australian public service agencies. It was a big change for these departments, many of which didn`t have a strong culture of origin, so it`s encouraging that there now seems to be this change in attitude,” she said. “Nearly two-thirds of executives are more supportive of employees working from home in the future,” said Associate Professor Colley. At UNSW, we value work-life balance and see flexibility as an important part of helping employees do their best. “After the pandemic, GSP organizations would do well to continue to give employees the opportunity to work from home,” she said. A new study by UNW Canberra and CQUniversity has shown that working from home has allowed employees to be more independent in their work, to be more productive and to give them more time with their families. In addition, we have different levels of support to enable our employees to take care of things in their personal lives while working at UNSW. Other options are: Gender Transition Leave, Domestic Violence Leave, Special Leave (for unexpected circumstances such as bushfires and pandemics) and cultural and religious holidays.

Our employees have access to a wide range of life-balancing aids – flexible work arrangements, generous on-site child care requirements, and comprehensive on-campus fitness facilities. CQU Associate Professor Linda Colley said the research as a whole shows that working from home is good for individuals, families and organizations. The study surveyed nearly 6,000 GSP employees about how they had worked from home during the current pandemic. Many UNW employees ask for flexibility to work from home from necessity or convenience. Having demonstrated our ability to work flexibly and productively, we want to continue to offer a “flex first” approach to all employees who wish to work in this way. We will introduce greater flexibility on location, hours, full-time equivalents, schedules and job sharing, in a planned and gradual manner. We believe this will bring a number of benefits to our community. We encourage you to talk to us about what this might be like for you. The report, which also contains a series of tips to help organizations facilitate work from home, is available here. UNSW HR Hub provides information to current employees that is relevant to parents, caregivers and employees who wish to explore flexible work and vacation options. While technology has provided the opportunity to work from home since the 1990s, the reception of organizations has progressed only slowly due to uncertainties about the impact on productivity and performance. “The staff want to continue working from home.

However, some managers and organisations are still in a pre-pandemic mentality and are hesitant to wish it. We encourage organizations to continue to accept this form of flexible work,” said Dr. Williamson. Greater flexibility in the organization of the work day is one of the advantages of working from home. However, this flexibility must be compensated by good management of the boundaries between work and place of residence. The study, which works with the community and the public sector union (CPSU), also found that nearly two-thirds of executives said they would be more supportive of workers working from home in the future. The majority of women and men were better able to take on care tasks while working from home. Research shows that the combination of work and care can increase productivity
