Covid-19 has presented organizations with an unprecedented situation that needs to be managed personally and professionally, in ways that haven’t been done before. Everything we do at Flipkart is driven by the need to ensure the safety, well-being, and progress of our employees.
At present the company’s focus has been to ensure that they support their employees as they work remotely, and equip them with adequate tools to help them take care of their physical and mental health, as they work from home. For employees who choose to return to work in office, the organization has implemented necessary measures to create a safe and secure workplace.
Simultaneously the company is taking a calibrated approach to resuming work at their office campus in Bengaluru, beginning with teams that are currently unable to work optimally from home owing to limited infrastructure. “We have strongly advised expectant mothers; employees with young children and/or elderly parents at home; employees with underlying medical conditions; differently-abled employees; staff who depend on public transport for commute; outstation employees; and employees residing in Covid-19 containment zones, to continue working remotely. We are ensuring that all preventive measures and safety precautions are being strictly implemented at our facilities. We’ve also made suitable arrangements on campus to ensure social distancing in the common areas,” states Nagaraj Kulkarni.
