Leadership teams at India’s top startups including Flipkart, Paytm, Udaan, and Zomato, among others have chosen to come back to work first, before asking colleagues to return, in part to instil confidence in the workforce around health safety.
In June, most businesses have given their employees continued flexibility to work from home, for functions which may not need at-work presence, despite the government’s recommendation to resume office travel.
“…depending on where the offices are situated wherever possible our senior leadership has taken the decision of coming to the office first, to instil confidence in our workforce that all necessary steps are being taken to safeguard employees,” a Paytm spokesperson told ET, adding that to begin with only 25% workforce is at work, while guidelines permit 33%. Paytm is headquartered in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
