The ongoing national lockdown has given new meaning to the concept of work from home. For both the public and private sectors, getting large numbers of employees to work productively from home has never mattered more. The quicker most organizations adapt to this reality, the better it would be for winning India’s war on Covid-19 – which now appears to be increasingly protracted. The reason employees of many MNCs are able to work from home is that remote working is a part of their contingency planning process, which is tested and certified annually. It is important to go even one step beyond this, to enable employees to work from anywhere. This will, of course, depend largely on the strength of the local ITES connections. Working from home is no longer a luxury, and it may be increasingly necessary to maintain employees’ work-life balance in India’s chaotic and clogged metros, as well as responding effectively to exceptional situations such as those caused by pandemics.
