Previously, we didn’t think that the situation would escalate so much but we have started taking preventive measures from March 15 itself. We were Working From Home since one week before the lockdown in order to do our bit in curbing the COVID-19 virus. All teams, irrespective of their specific field like, finance, design, consultants etc., are working from home. Luckily in the digital era, we have many tools at our behest that allow us smooth communication, assignment of tasks, review work etc. We are a design- based firm, so lot of our designs activities are still going on.
What can make Work From Home a success
When one is Working From Home, one saves a lot of commuting time which easily equates to one, one and a half hour, or more.
This lost time can now be used to do something productive like waking up early, family Yoga, or easy work-out at home. I strongly believe that an active lifestyle entails to a happy, healthy and peaceful life.
It’s a very challenging time for humanity. A very difficult time for our country is going on. While a group of people like us are able to manage through WFH without having much impact on our lifestyle, there are others who are unable to do this transition and will be facing severe drawbacks which is very unfortunate. It is really scary to think about the situation of an average guy who supports his family, how will they survive?
I sincerely hope that as a society, we would pull together and help people who are less fortunate in these troubling times.
