The covid pandemic has forced employers to adopt a work-from-home strategy for their employees to ensure uninterrupted workflows. Now that the daily number of cases in India is decreasing day by day, employees are curious whether there will be 100% attendance, work from home or remote and hybrid working models.

Initially, working from home was seen as a stopgap measure, but after multiple variants of Covid-19 emerged, it could become a long-term solution.

Private companies such as Tata Steel, Meesho and global tech giants Microsoft, Twitter, Meta have rejected the idea of ​​having 100% workforce in offices.

While Tata Steel has allowed its employees to work from anywhere, Meesho has taken a “borderless approach”, according to the cnbctv18 report.

National technology majors Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Wipro preferred to experiment with hybrid models.

“As our world is changing, our work, our workforce and our workplace are also changing rapidly. Remote and hybrid work models, global talent pools, flexible working hours and changing jobs have reformed the worker-employee relationship,” Yogita Tulsiani, MD & Co-Founder, iXceed Solutions said.

“CEOs can no longer afford to follow the rules of the past and must think outside the box to meet the needs of their workforce and their organization. Business leaders must strive to build relationships strong with their workforce, cultivating a progressive work culture and anticipating the needs of their employees,” Tulsiani said.

Human resources managers felt that 100% presence or full strength in the office could become a thing of the past. Several industries, including IT, are seeing the trend of employees insisting on working from anywhere, according to the cnbctv18 report.

While many employers are ready to become flexible, there have been concerns about data privacy and moonlighting.
