COVID-19 lockdown: Axis Securities introduces 2-3-5 day work from home model for employees


COVID-19: Axis Securities rolls out 2/3/5-days work-from-home model

New Delhi Brokerage company Axis Securities has introduced a two-to-five-day work from home model. This will enable the company to ensure that a minimum number of people have to come to office amid the Kovid-19 epidemic. Under this model, employees would come to office two, three or five days a week. This will depend on the importance, complexity and role of their work.

Axis Securities managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) B Gopakumar said that as per the requirement, we have classified people into 2D-3D-5D. We have also made arrangements that the employees who have elders and young children in their families do not have to come to office.

He said that Axis Securities would open its offices in three phases after the lockdown. This will depend on the situation and government guidelines. The company said that 10 percent of the employees will come to office in the first phase. These will include team leaders and department heads. In the second phase, 30 percent employees and in the third phase 60 percent employees will be called to office.

The company has also made some infrastructural changes in its offices, such as limiting seating arrangements to ensure social distancing. During the lockdown, various digital programs and welfare programs were also run for the employees, such as Yoga for Leadership and Gurukul. Dealership connect sessions were also organized to reduce employee stress.

A nationwide lockdown has been in place in the country since March 25 to prevent the spread of corona virus infection. The lockdown has been extended four times. The current phase of lockdown ends on 31 May. The number of corona infections in India has been 1.73 lakh and till date about 5000 people have died in the country due to this disease.
