With cases of coronavirus on the rise and no visible relief in sight, Curry Nation has decided that work permanently from home is the best practice to follow in the larger interest of its people, at least as of now.
Priti Nair, Founder, Curry Nation, said, “Most of our people commute from far-flung suburbs of Mumbai. Public transport is the only mode of travel feasible for them and traveling by public transport meant exposing them to unseen dangers of the virus. It just didn’t sit well with us. It would have been unreasonable and selfish to ask people to travel to office.”
The past three months have shown a host of benefits that prompted us to take this decision.
Nagessh Pannaswami, Co-Founder, said, “Safety of our Curry Nation family was of paramount importance and that drove this decision. And along with it came of host of other benefits. We don’t see the fear of the virus abating till October or maybe even later (till such time that an antidote is found). Hence we thought it prudent to shift base to home. I feel it’s the smartest thing to do. And getting people to commute to office with immense risk to their lives and work under a roof and four walls called an office is now old world thinking. We need more ‘compassionate management’ of people. We will review our decision once the macro environment stabilises.”
