PUNE: Although ‘Work from Home’ (WFH) option for employees  is associated with number of challenges, corporate companies are postive about its implementation and are finding ways to continue their business process. 

MD Netrika Consulting India Pvt Ltd Sanjay Kaushik, said, “Corporates are increasingly focusing on the safety of their employees. Many offices are shifting towards remote working while reminding employees to maintain hygiene and seek medical attention if they develop symptoms. We also have enacted WFH.”

Senior VP, Asia Pacific at Qlik, Geoff Thomas, said that the company is taking precautions to protect employees.” While no Qlik office closures are planned at this time, we’re encouraging virtual meetings. We have great video and collaboration technology that our employees can take advantage of. Employees can also choose to WFH once they get confirmation from their managers.”
  
Speaking on the support provided by the companies to their employees and customers to facilitate their business, President & CEO, LogMeIn, Bill Wagner said,  “We have decided to make Emergency Remote Work Kits available to all existing LogMeIn customers. We will allow current LogMeIn customers to expand their agreements with us to include GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar and other tools to cover their entire employee population for up to three months at no additional cost. We will also be offering assistance with deploying and training users who are new.”

Flipkart stated that the company is taking adequate precaution and is encouraging employees to work from home if they are unwell.
