Curry Nation goes ‘Work Permanently from Home’ for now

The agency has taken the decision in the larger interest of its people who have to commute long distances and travel by public transport meant exposing them to unseen dangers of the virus

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.

  1. Our people are getting more sleep and look better rested and fresh
  2. Enhanced productivity
  3. Saving commute time adds to the work hours
  4. Relief from maddening rush of Mumbai travel
  5. Savings on fuel, electricity consumption
  6. Savings on operating costs
  7. Happiness quotient is higher
  8. Employees getting more time with family
  9. More focus and efficiency
  10. Better time management
  11. People have become better listeners, and objective & outcome led
  12. Overall health of our employees has improved with WFH

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.”
