Abstract

This study aimed to determine the effect of the work from home (WFH)
policy on employee performance and discipline during the COVID-19
pandemic. Data were quantitatively collected from 105 employees in
Indonesia through questionnaires and online survey methods due to social
restrictions. Data collected were analyzed using structural equation modeling
(SEM). The results showed that WFH did not affect employee performance
( = .10, p = .08), rather it has a significant positive effect on work discipline
( = .52, p = .00) and employee performance ( = .83, p = .00).
Furthermore, WFH has a positive effect on employee performance through
work discipline ( = .53, p = .00). The results provide an academic and
practical picture that the prolonged WFH policy does not improve employee
performance. These findings have implications for human resource
management in organizations in the form of designing work systems,
providing a supportive environment, good communication relationships
between employees to encourage their involvement in improving
performance.

Keywords: work from home, work discipline, employee performance, COVID-19
