In the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak, not only in India but countries across the globe announced lockdown. Our lifestyle did turn upside down in a matter of days. For the more physically distant we are, the higher are the chances of winning over this pandemic. While the same is quintessential to ghost this contagious virus, the work must not get impacted. Even though putting the economy second and life first is the motto, we must not let the business go for a toss.
With the same thought, every business owner during the lockdown is trying its best to make the business survive this testing time. By following the idea of “QuaratineSelf-Quarantine and Work”, companies are trying to make work from home, work for them. While some of them are succeeding and some of them are able to do their bare minimum, we thought of walking you through our way of working from home. Hope it adds something to yours.
We keep employees engaged
It is normal for the employees to start feeling low and alone during this time as many of them might even be living alone. So, to emphasize physical distancing and not getting disconnected altogether, our employees use HRIS software chat option and also do video calls to resolve work issues and stay connected otherwise.
We help them stay positive
With negative numbers and rumours that seemed to be true flashing at screens every minute, it was getting tough for our employees to stay positive and focused. So, our HR took hold of the situation by using the HRIS software smartly to share the right and positive information related to COVID-19 and other quotes to keep them inspired and sane.
We respect our employees’ autonomy
While we wanted to not let our productivity droop, we also wanted to keep work from home comfortable for the employees. So, while the teams connect with each other at the start and end of the day, we encourage employees to figure out the best working space in their house for themselves.
We give proper feedback
To address the communication gap that affected productivity, we ensured that proper feedback is shared with all of them using video meetings, initiative ratings and more. Case management was also set in place to expedite solutions to any technical or non-technical issue.
We endure a culture of appreciation- Instead of pestering employees with every minute calls, we started focusing on the results while keeping them motivated using badges and rewards.
All of the aforementioned things became a reality because of WORKFORCE CONNECT.
