Abstract

The chapter examines the manner in which COVID-19 is affecting employee productivity given to the global organizational restructuring. This chapter focuses on the general impact it has had on organizations, particularly SMEs in Karachi, Pakistan. A review of the current literature indicates organizations have been constrained into projects of quick and revolutionary change. In basically all cases, there will be further significant changes ahead for those organizations that endure the impact of COVID-19. This study quantitatively tests the link between organizational restructuring and the impact it holds on employee productivity. This is done through questionnaires being distributed amongst the sample of employees working at different FMCG companies going through organizational restructuring. The expected findings suggest that employee output has decreased as there has been a drastic work environment shift; they are not as motivated and focused working from home as compared to the formal work setup they've been working in for years.
