The $4 billion group, which has a presence in tyres, IT, health, energy, infrastructure and plantations, has framed a new policy wherein all its sales people will permanently work remotely, whileother employees would WFH 50% of the time. For office-based staff, this can extend to 75% in special cases.
In a month, an office-based employee can work two weeks from home, and in special cases, he/she can work remotely for three weeks.
At present, office-based staff awork entirely from home due to the pandemic, with the group unanimously keeping all its offices shut.
