Considering the employees inclination towards the work from home model, several companies are planning to continue with remote working at least as an option.
Employees Ready To Quit Job
For instance, Tata Steel had announced an ‘Agile Working Models’ policy during the pandemic.
Now, the firm plans to continue with it.
During the pandemic, people have made themselves comfortable with working from home.
But now, it’s a new normal and there seems to be no turning back.
If given a choice between working from home or higher salaries, now employees seem to be inclining towards the former.
Further, some of them are even okay with quitting the job, if the work from home option is not available.
The same was confirmed by a survey which was conducted by recruitment and staffing firm CIEL HR Services.
According to this, at least 6 out of every 10 employees answered that they were ready to resign instead of returning to the office.
Interestingly, almost the same number of respondents were ready to skip a higher-paid job which requires them to come to the office, according to the survey findings.
Moreover, the view is shared by the people from IT, outsourcing, tech startups, consulting, BFSI and business-enabling functions across all sectors.
Everyone has their own reasons for people to choose work from home.
But, it has allowed for a better work-life balance without impacting their work efficiencies as per the common belief.
Hybrid Model Here To Stay
India’s IT major, Tata Consultancy Services is shifting to a hybrid mode of working.
As per this 25X25 model, only 25 percent of its associates will work from an office at any given point in time, and they need not spend more than 25 percent of their time in the office.
Similarly, a hybrid model is also under operation at Mercedes-Benz India.
The firm is following a roster system with 50 percent of non-production staff on campus, according to the chief executive Martin Schwenk.
Another firm, KPMG, has also opened its offices, will be rolling out a hybrid working model this year.
Adding to the list, Deloitte has already moved into hybrid work mode.
Hybrid working model is likely to be around for some time, considering it provides “a best-of-both worlds scenario”, said Partner and chief talent officer SV Nathan opine.
Further adding, “It is difficult to predict deep into the future, simply because the pace of change is so rapid
