Masterclass-2 Decoding Productivity - The New Normal of Work & Workplaces

About a month ago if someone were to ask us when will we, as business leaders be ready for a mass scale Work from Home Scenario, the answer would have been about 5-10 years from now. The current pandemic has made it a reality within a few weeks and pushed us to think of newer ways of managing work. For other industries like manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare and aviation, however, not all functions could be carried out from home. Companies in these industries face additional challenges of ensuring safety of their employees who are working on the frontline.

To discuss these business and people challenges Sandeep Chaudhary, President & Board Member, PeopleStrong interacted with Hardika Shah, Founder & CEO, Kinara Capital and JaiKrishna B, President – Group HR, New Business Development and Corp Communication, Amara Raja

The two diverse perspectives from the Financial Services and Manufacturing industry will help you paint a picture of the new normal of work and workforce and enable you to prepare for it.

“This time in many ways is chaotic but there is also a calm setting in. The calm is allowing business leaders to rethink about all their processes and business models: ‘Are they relevant? Are they effective? The old model has to go out of the window and be redefined for the new normal. So business leaders must use this as an opportunity to reflect inwards.”

“We facilitated the geo tagging for our entire workforce of 16,000 people. We communicated to everyone that we would like to know where you are and stay connected. And with people checking-in through geo tagging attendance management system of PeopleStrong Alt, we knew they were safe.”  JaiKrishna B., President – Group HR, New Business Development and Corp Communication, Amara Raja
