Wherever possible, all technology services firms have let their employees work from home.
The situation is slightly tricky for these firms because some client projects serviced out of India are highly sensitive and work on strict secrecy. Entire floors or designated spaces are often allocated for such projects and employees have restricted movement and use of communications.
While firms are renegotiating these terms with clients, there are also those who may have travelled before the coronavirus
spread to different countries.
"All other employees are in good health and are being monitored continuously. We have invoked our COVID-19 Contingency Plan in all geographies which aims at maximizing Work from Home to aid social distancing and also issued a Travel Advisory across the company, taking full precautionary measures and suspending all non-essential travel until further notice. Our recently launched global helpline for Covid-19 provides 24X7 support to our employees," HCL added.
