India Inc may stick to hybrid work model in new year
A large section of India Inc across sectors is likely to follow hybrid working model in the new year as the pandemic enters its third year.
Executives from companies including Maruti Suzuki, Saint-Gobain, ITC, Dabur, Wipro, Infosys, HCL Technologies, Uber, Amazon, Flipkart and KPMG told ET that a mix of remote and on-site work will continue at least for the first few months of 2022.
With the impact of the newly found Covid-19 variant Omicron not known, some companies like Kotak Mahindra Bank and Nestle India have either slowed down or completely stopped business travel and team gatherings.
We expect to operate in a hybrid mode for most of the coming year,” said Richard Lobo, head, HR, at Infosys. “We will have a mix of people – some who will work out of the office while others work partially or fully remote.”
