With the rise of Covid-19, employees in many countries have been advised to stay at home and perform their duties online rather than working on-site. This research aims to identify the working from home (WFH) concept, including its definition and related statistics, its positive and negative aspects, its relations with productivity, and future research directions. Hence, a systematic literature review has been conducted to cover the most recent literature related to the topic. Some interesting statistics were extracted from literature and presented in this paper showing the feasibility and the importance of this concept. Moreover, it covered the WFH pros and cons and summarized them in a table. In addition, many suggestions were provided to improve these aspects. Performance and productivity have also been highlighted since they are vital for the success of any organization. Furthermore, a list of future research directions was summarized in the paper, which may guide authors for future research by focusing on the mentioned knowledge gaps to take this research further.
