OVERVIEW 

The lockdown in some parts of the country, due to the COVID-19 pandemic took many organisations by surprise. Employees had to work from home for an extended period; for many, this was the first time they have had to work remotely.

Prior to COVID-19, there had been various arguments for and against the adoption of remote work in Nigeria. These arguments range from reduced operating costs for businesses, and reduced cost of living and commuting time for employees (in favour or remote work), to unreliable indices for monitoring employees activities / performances, and distractions at home (against remote work).
