Many organizations have been thrown into unfamiliar waters by the negative impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic. As a result, businesses have derived response mechanisms and aligned themselves to the unpredictable current situation. This paper focused on the impact of remote work practice on employees. The paper reviewed extant literature on the subject and adopted the diffusion of innovation theory as a based-line theory. The findings revealed that remote work practice through job autonomy, social support, and monitoring has positively impacted the performance of employees. This paper has therefore contributed to the body of knowledge by establishing a positive relationship between remote work practice and employee performance. This paper further recommends that organizations should embrace remote work practices, encourage employee collaboration and provide the support necessary for the use of virtual platforms.
