The pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 triggered a profound economic crisis of global proportions, due to measures to contain the transmission of the virus causing the disease, being social isolation and, in more severe situations, the complete closure of non-essential activities (lockdown). In order to survive this scenario, many organizations began to adopt remote work as an alternative to continue their activities. However, this new way of working could not be properly structured and planned due to the urgency of such adaptation. Thus, the aim of this study is to discuss the advantages and challenges of the home office emergence due to the pandemic outbreak of Coronavirus. Among the main benefits are the flexibility and digital learning of professionals, and the technological transformation of organizations. The prominent limitations were the lack of infrastructure, the extension of the working day and the tenuous limit between professional and personal life.
