Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

In my previous blog in April, “Is Work-from-home (WFH) the future working model for technology companies?” I had highlighted that Indian technology companies have been fast in reacting to the pandemic by making a shift towards working from home in line with their global counterparts.

Indian Technology companies maintain 90% or above level of employees WFH

In their 1QFY21 results majority IT companies highlighted that over 90% of their employees continue to WFH during the quarter.

Infosys ~99%
HCL ~96%
WNS ~92%
Mphasis ~90%
Tech Mahindra ~95%

Also, this situation is expected to remain the same in the coming months, rather it is bound to change the way organizations will be work over the longer-term.

Also, though the government has relaxed guidelines for return to office, most companies are not in a hurry to get employees back to office.

Globally, companies are taking a step ahead

Productivity Increase a key driver?

According to a Bain survey of over 900 company employees, during April 28, 2020 to May 20, 2020 – more than 50% of the respondents said their productivity either increased was the same during WFH with no commute time and increased ability to focus as the top reasons for the same.

With the post covid era highlighting a situation where such pandemic events can disrupt businesses, work from home seems to be a critical part of business continuity plan. Consequently, most of the service providers with offshore delivery centers are already asking their clients for work-from-home (WFH) waivers in their contracts.

Overall, a lot has changed in the post Covid era and it seems working from home is one big change which is there to stay virus no virus.
