Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB), Coca-Cola India’s single largest bottling partner, has announced a ‘work from home’ policy for employees which gives employees the option to permanently work from home.
The company, which makes Maaza juice drink, Thums Up, Sprite and Coca-Cola aerated drinks and operates across 15 factories, said the policy will span the period post-pandemic, such that employees can choose to permanently work-from-home, provided they do not need to be physically present at the work location, for example at factories and sales functions.
To begin with, HCCB said in a statement it has started delivering ergonomically designed chairs from its office to the eligible employees, to their homes, on request. Those working in other cities have the option to purchase work chairs.
