Infosys’s 33% staff to WFH permanently in the future
June 19, 2020
Infosys says that 33% of its staff will WFH permanently, in the future. Once the situation improves, 50% of its employees will start coming to offices. Rest of all will continue to work from home
Gradually, Infosys looks to maintain 66% of people working from offices and 33% working from home. This might be a permanent work model for Infosys in the near future. The executive vice president and head HR of Infosys Richard Lobo announced this plan
Also, Infosys wants to rotate the people who are part of work from home. Not always the same set of people will work from home and it keeps on rotating.
According to the current numbers, if 33% of the employees will start working from home it will be around 80,000 people. These are the ones who will work from home permanently.
Infosys did not commit any timeline to implement this plan. Mr.Lobo believes the timeline for implementation entirely depends on the Covid-19 recovery
Infosys believes that this work from the home model is not that tough to implement and many companies have already successfully done it. Also during the corona lockdown, this implementation is done by several companies
After the Q4 results, Infosys’s COO announced this same thing. He reiterates that there is no decrease in productivity during the lockdown, even though most of the employees are working from home
