Job quality is carefully studied in the research literature and there are multiple models for analyzing relevant indicators. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted employees’ work and lives, leading to changes in work patterns. Much of the discussions fell under the label of the possibility of working from different places and the implications of information technology on the perceived quality of a workplace. The present study examines the relationship between the perceived quality in the context of distance working. To address the current situation the study emphasizes how the theory, research, and practice have evolved in regard to perceived work quality and its implication for employees. The notion of perceived organization quality was broadened, and the implication of working from home was analyzed from the employees’ point of view. How the possibility of working from home affects the perceived quality of an organization and how this will shape the organization’s functions are subjects of this article. The findings contribute to the understanding of employees’ behavior with choosing a workplace and the key factors that shape the image of a quality organization.
