New world of work
The pandemic brought in an unprecedented change in several facets of life and has caused major economic and social disruption globally. Among the most significant is the way of working particularly for the knowledge sector. With remote working taking predominance for almost 2 years, there is bound to be change in habits, routine and needs of employees, fundamentally changing the way people work. While one may argue that remote working has provided the flexibility, convenience and comfort for employees, there is a need to address social connect, collaboration & innovation and maintaining organization culture & values, which are essential in the long-run. With the pandemic subsiding and employees returning to office to work, the office setup as we know today needs to be refreshed and re-aligned to the needs of the employees and the new ways of working.
At Infosys, we have embarked on a workplace transformation exercise aimed at transforming our physical infrastructure into a new experience for the employees to navigate and excel in the new normal. The Future Ready Hybrid Workplace will cater to the different needs of employees – providing the best of productivity, social connect and well-being. The transformed office offers a variety of space for employees, leverages the power of technology, and enables social connect, while ensuring the principles of health & wellness, sustainability, and inclusivity. Every space in the transformed office is designed with a specific purpose and ready for welcoming the employees with its vibrant and exciting interiors, as we believe workplace experience will play a major role in employees returning to office.
