Tech Mahindra Offers to work from Home
At a time when most IT companies are insisting employees return to work, Tech Mahindra has given the flexibility to employees to choose where they want to work from. The Covid-19 pandemic has made it difficult for companies to choose how their employees work.
Unlike its peers, Indian IT major Tech Mahindra has left the decision on its employees. COVID-19 pandemic has left a physical and mental impact on employees. The company has understood the apprehensions about commuting to the office, social distancing, and hygiene when the COVID-19 is spreading rampantly.
For those choosing to work from office space, Tech Mahindra is ensuring all the possible safety and sanitation measures. The company wants to support employees by offering them the liberty to work from home or anywhere they choose.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has started, a number of tech companies have offered WFH option to its workforce. Indian IT service firms switched to remote working within a few weeks after the first case was reported.
After the government partially allowed the IT firms to restart their operations, some of these firms started calling their employees back to work. Some of the companies are operating with 10% of the workforce capacity from office on a rotational basis.
Tech Mahindra is among the few companies in India to allow employees to pick whether they want to work remotely or in office. The tech firm has also implemented several checks to ensure a safe office space environment.
