New Delhi: Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions (RBEI), the technology arm of the $87 billion Bosch group will continue with 30-40 percent of employees working remotely on a permanent basis, said a top company official.
RK Shenoy, Member of Executive Leadership Team and Senior VP – Engineering, RBEI told ETAuto, “Earlier 100 percent of employees were working in the office. So this is a big change that is happening, especially in engineering it is not heard of. It will give higher flexibility to associates.”
While companies were scrambling to get their act together as pandemic prompted them to halt their operations and eventually shift to WFH, RBEI continued to work seamlessly from remote locations owing to the early investments made into software-in-loop and simulation technologies.
Shenoy highlighted, “Being a system developer and hardware intensive company, we have been able to work without any downtime or loss of efficiency, which has been a big positive for us. Fortunately, RBEI had invested heavily in software which enabled us to actively access the engineering labs while working remotely using the software in loop, simulation and digital twins.”
