Kerala-based online survey platform provider, SurveySparrow said the company has extended the remote-work policy for its employees with up to 30 percent hike in the salaries for all its eligible employees. With this move, the company intends to boost the morale of the employees who are trying to cope with Corona virus spread and also the economic impact of the pandemic.
Apart from providing a good rise in the perks, it has also offered office furniture to its staff to set-up home offices. “SurveySparrow’s remote work policy also includes ensuring the employees have proper office furniture delivered at their doorstep irrespective of the location,” the company said in a statement.
The move to provide new remote work policy from the company comes after the Union government extended the connectivity norms for Work From Home (WFH) for IT and ITeS companies till December 31, 2020, from July 31, 2020.
Many major IT companies had welcomed the government’s plan to extend the WFH connectivity norms to December. After the lock down was announced in March this year, the Indian IT industry had offered 90 percent of its workforce remote working opportunity.
