The COVID-19 pandemic has revolutionized human resource management, forcing organizations to shift their work environments from in-office setups to remote workplaces. As a result, managers, and employees continue to strive to adapt to and cope with the radical work changes induced by the pandemic. Existing literature on the subject identifies the positive impact of remote work on organizational performance, highlighting job autonomy and flexibility as intrinsic motivations for remote workers. However, from a psychological perspective, the shift to remote work can have negative implications for employees, affecting their well-being and job productivity. This paper examines the relationship between remote work and organizational performance in the context of employee well-being and psychological satisfaction. It provides a theoretical perspective on increased and decreased organizational performance following a shift to remote work. The paper also provides suggestions for improving the well-being of remote workers to foster increased organizational performance and facilitate more shifts to remote work models.
