Working From Home (WFH) has become more important for many professionals since it is the only way to keep working while minimizing the risk of virus infection. Companies have begun to see WFH as a "new normal" mode of working due to the unpredictability surrounding the timing of epidemics and future outbreaks. This study examines the likely repercussions of labour income distribution in relation to the long-term rise in the capacity to work from home among Saudi employees using relevant activity regression patterns. The data imply that an increase in average labour income is associated with an increase in WFH potential, but that this advantage is not spread evenly among employees. In Particular, increasing WFH options will help older, highly educated, and well-paid employees. However, more employees who locate in the areas most afflicted by the new coronavirus will profit from this "mandated discovery." This presents a number of difficulties for human resource (HR) trainers. With the demand for skills in strategic HR management, HR professionals must follow crisis management innovations to promote worker flexibility and effectively address the repercussions of working from home. Due to the role of employers, this study addresses the need to enhance employee capacity, decrease psychological stress, strengthen work-family balance, and strengthen organizational culture from the perspective of Human Resource Management (HRM). The WFH was a vital part of the government's response to epidemics. As a result, the WFH faces the potential of aggravating labor market inequities, particularly if something is not effectively controlled. As a result, the research suggests that policies aiming at decreasing inequality, such as short-term income support and long-term human capital initiatives, may play a more compensating role in the future.
