Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine the influence of remote work on organizational performance (OP), specifically focusing on the function of large human resource management (LHRM) and workforce agility (WA). Additionally, we will explore the characteristics of remote work and its impact on organizational performance, with the assistance of work from home enablers (WFHE) and to analyze the impact of remote work on HR practices, specifically focusing on remote worker employee engagement, productivity, and organizational performance.The study employed a quantitative research approach and utilized a self-administered questionnaire for data collection. The research employs a deductive research methodology .A total of 315 participants successfully completed the survey. Prior to the statistical analysis, the data screening process was carried out using SPSS. The data analysis and hypothesis testing were conducted using SPSS and PLS-SEM.The study contains certain limits that should be acknowledged. Initially, the extent to which firms supported their employees by furnishing them with the necessary work-from-home resources remains ambiguous. Further the concepts of flexible workforces and adaptable workforces are closely related and can be used interchangeably. Empirical research has shown that implementing large-scale HRM practices such as Agile Work, Lean, and resilient HRM can have an indirect but positive impact on organizational performance by promoting remote work. The implementation of agile work methodologies offers numerous benefits to both enterprises and individuals, especially those who have their own dedicated workspace. Training, new technical tools for doing duties, and boosting employee communication are all examples of innovative techniques and procedures that organizations and the HR department in particular should be seeking out and developing.This research addresses a gap in the existing literature by examining the external business factors that influence and moderate the relationship between remote work and HR practices. Specifically, it focuses on the impact of remote work on employee engagement, productivity, and organizational performance.
