A number of companies have predicted a permanent change to working practices after the Covid-19 pandemic is over.
The need to react to the current crisis has accelerated thinking around whether and how to keep employees working from home in a post Covid-19 world.
While having a substantial portion of a workforce operating from home is not without challenges, IBM has highlighted that it has enabled cients to access the skills of their employees around the globe.
As organisations slowly start to think about exiting lockdown, they might consider what aspects of their approach to this period can be carried forward.
TCS said 75% of its 450,000 workers could work from home in the post-Covid-19 world. N Ganapathy Subramaniam, chief operating officer at TCS, said recently that the company is expecting to have only a quarter of its staff working from offices by 2025. “We don’t believe we need to have more than 25% of our workforce at our facilities to be 100% productive."
