Mumbai, Aug 27: Work from Home for BPO employees?!?! Yes, you heard right! Now, the ghost-hourly work shifts may be the thing of the past as Tata Communications launches an innovative service which enables employees of BPOs to work from home
The service, called Work From Home Solution, will help IT-enabled Services (ITeS) companies to give their employees an option to work from home, while maintaining the security and confidentiality necessary for the business, a press release issued said. It allows companies to empower their employees to tele-work in a secure and cost-effective manner. Tata Communications offers this facility as an overlay on its IP-VPN/MPLS network, the release said.
"This is a win-win solution for both employers and employees. Employees are expected to benefit in terms of reduced travel time and being able to maintain a better work-life balance," Tata Communication's President of the Enterprise Business Unit (India) Sunil Joshi said in the release.
"Employers would gain by way of lower real estate and administrative costs and availability of alternate talent pools, for instance home-makers, to meet their staff growth plans," Joshi added.
