I really really hate Monday. Public transport difficult to get, traffic even worse than the usual ugly ones,... Why should we go the long distance through that ugly traffic and exhausting ride while we can do most tasks remotely?
My boss once commented: "Who could guarantee that the person allowed to worked remotely really does his work?"
Who could guarantee that people at the office really do their jobs? That's a conventional point of view. If you want to keep your people in the office, e.g. From 7 to 4, then don't expect them to do any work-related stuff outside those hours. Don't expect them to return your calls, emails, or any messages outside those hours.
Another Business Unit has started going towards the "officeless" concept. As a start, its director has made a program called "I love Monday", which allows employees to not be at the office on Monday morning until after lunch time. One source said it's a test case before applying the program to the whole day. The employees are also encouraged to leave the office when the official working hour is over. As a compensation, the management provides employees with laptops and internet access (and probably a mobile phone for some particular roles) so that they can be reached anytime.
