How effective are ‘Working from Home’ Strategies?

When employees work from home, or engage in what is referred to as remote work, often a level of skepticism arises regarding whether or not such remote work will be effective. Indeed, how does one know if someone is working effectively or not?

This notion shows that there are many things that need to be improved upon so that employee performance remains optimal and provides the best results for the company. Starting from the time employees starts their job to when they finish it.


Working from home can be very effective if supported by sufficient tools used according to specific needs. Further, some conditions that usually occur when working from home include the following:

  1. Sometimes we think that if we do not physically see someone sitting at their desk at work, this means that they are not finishing their work.
  2. Remote workers find it difficult to prove their work, and feel they must always be “seen” conducting their work. They will mostly feel worried about how their contributions to the overall results of their projects can be noticed.
  3. Many think just because someone is working at home, that they will always be willing to work whenever needed. They will be willing to answer quickly in response to any questions asked.

From the three things mentioned above, it can be concluded that working from home is not as easy as we think. However, at LOGIQUE, the constraints that normally hamper the remote working process can be overcome.

As a professional company which has implemented systems of remote work since 2018, there are some important aspects that should be paid attention to in support of such strategies. LOGIQUE tackles such problems in a logical manner and focuses on aspects of fairness for all of our employees.

In practice, here are some things that have been implemented to support our employees working from home:

1. Dokodemo-Kerja

Dokodemo-Kerja is an HR application that we have developed to help the productivity and effectiveness of remote work systems. Here are some of the features found in the Dokodemo-Kerja application:

Start & Stop Button

This button enables flexibility. While work is being conducted, the Start button can be pressed, prompting the system to automatically record only up until the Stop option is selected.

Tracking Work Hours

The ability to track work hours functions as a reminder as to the total time actually put into one’s work. This feature will display how much time the individual has put into one day, week or even month. Through tracking work hours, we can find out what we call our ‘golden hours’, meaning the hours we are the most productive at work.

Screen Capture

Employees may find it difficult to make reports about their work because certain tasks completed that day have been forgotten. This system assists workers in visualizing what has been done that day, and can be used as a basis of evaluation in order to increase productivity.

2. Nippo

Nippo is a web-based HR application that can help employees to make daily reports. With Nippo, supervisors can directly assess the work done by team members on a daily basis. Employee tasks can then be properly assessed and evaluated thoroughly. Nippo is also easy to use because it is available as a web application. Nippo can be accessed via desktop or mobile.
