Working Closer to Home
Revamping workspaces is more opportune now than ever. Burgeoning congestion, dilapidated transport infrastructures, public space constraints—all make up for a gruelling, long travel to work for office-goers.
What, in large measure, could comfortably bring down commute time?
Our Chief People Officer, Mr. Rajeshwar Tripathi potentially drew up a response with the Satellite Office Policy for Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.
In response to prolonged work commutes leading to productivity falls, Mr.Tripathi outlines his attempt to get into the model of creating Satellite Offices in such areas of Mumbai where a significant concentration of employee population is found, on an experimental basis.
He opened up on his vision, “We believe that besides taking care of people’s inconveniences, we would also be enabling them to be more productive.”
The policy extends to the officers whose roles can be productively executed outside the headquarters.
A pre-ascertained fixed number of seats will be made available at the Satellite Offices on a first-cum-first-serve basis.
Mr. Tripathi further adds, “With this new policy, we expect people to save about 3 hours of travel time daily, which will in turn help improve their productivity and quality of life. To start off the experiment, we’re introducing a Satellite Office at one location. Based on the adoption of this unique policy, more Satellite Offices can be planned at other locations, as per the need. The organization expects people to make the best use of this opportunity and help us in meeting objectives without losing out on work outcomes.”
From the looks of it, Satellite Offices are set to create a constellation of efficiencies considerably improving work-life balance for employees.
