A lot of IT companies are grappling with a common problem statement these days and that is - "How much % of total work force should be allowed to work from home once the crisis of COVID-19 is over?". There are a lot of debates on this topic where a few IT companies have gone ahead and said that their 50% of workforce would continue to work from home permanently whereas some organizations have different point of view on it.
I am sure life won't be same again post Covid and there are some important lessons learnt from this crisis like being more responsible towards mother earth as nature has its own ways of healing itself, differentiating between essential and non-essentials of our lives, being more generous to workers who provide essential services to us and giving value to simple pleasures of life

I completed 13 years at Infosys on July 24th, 2019. Honestly speaking, I never thought I would come this far. When I joined Infosys, I thought that I won't even be able to survive its training but it has proved to be an exciting journey so far.
Last week, I attended my first offsite after getting into the role of a manager. At Infosys, we have regular account and team level parties but offsite was a very different and pleasant experience. The offsite was planned for managers and senior managers; so the first timers like me were expecting it to be a very formal event with team building exercises and food.
