Coca-Cola Offers Permanent Work From Home

Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB) has announced an option of permanent work-from-home for its employees whose physical presence in the office is not required at work location.


The company has extended monetary support to employees to make the work-home space ergonomics suitable. Employees can avail monetary support to purchase tables, headphones, lamps, webcam, external microphone, even a coffee mug or flower arrangement.


HCCB said in a statement, “The policy, which is built on the company’s basic tenet of providing care and flexibility, will span the period post-pandemic that employees can choose to permanently work-from-home, provided they do not need to be physically present at the work location such as factory, or sales.”


HCCB CHRO Indrajeet Sengupta said, “The unique feature of the policy is that it has been co-created by our colleagues who we feel know their problems the best. The situation is evolving and hence we remain open and flexible to any modifications that the policy may need.”


Under the policy, the company has started delivering ergonomically designed chairs from its office to the eligible employees to their homes on request.


To deal with physical and emotional challenges, the company also has provisioned for telemedicine facility and wellness counselling ‘1To1 HELP’.
