The pandemic has spawned a new culture, and just about every IT firm in the city had announced the WFH (Work from home) option. However, with the number of cases in Telangana reducing to less than 300 per day, the state government has issued guidelines asking the IT firms to start regular operations.


Accordingly, the IT firms are expected to have their employees back in the office by September end. It is known that it has been about a year and a half when thousands of employees from the IT, software, and other MNCs switched to work from home or WFH mode due to the pandemic.


To be safe and to save on money spent on rents, many IT and software professionals from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have shifted their base to their native places. In most cases, this was to their home towns and villages. However, in July, the state government had given directives asking for companies to start calling their employees to offices.


However, this new decision has garnered mixed responses from the employees. While some maintain that they fear contracting COVID once back in the office, others insist that the WFH option has resulted in burnout as it means irregular hours.


One data analyst who is working from home from Kamareddy shares that WFH felt good during the initial days. She adds that as days went by, her higher-ups asked her to work for more than 10 hours. This naturally led to stress and tension in the house. Also, the speed of the internet is another major glitch, she says.


There are others who fear a lack of proper conditions to work from. As offices tend to be crowded, the fear of contracting COVID is high among employees. Another reason for fear is the fact that the Delta variant of the COVID virus has been seen even among people who have been fully vaccinated.


Meanwhile, the principal secretary of IT, Jayesh Ranjan, maintains that the return of employees to offices will help many associated in the process, such as helpers, sanitation workers, drivers, and others, earn a livelihood.


As for offices, many are coming forward to get their employees vaccinated. Few other offices are asking their employees to be fully vaccinated before they return to the office.
