Just 10% of employees back in office: Report

BENGALURU: Just 10% of employees had returned to office as of the end of November, compared to the normal levels in March, according to data from WorkInSync, which provides tech solutions for the workplace. That number is less than 5% for the tech cities of Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
For Mumbai and Delhi NCR, it is over 20%.
Pharma and IT, ITeS and BPO sectors are returning to office at a faster rate (27% and 16% respectively) compared to pure play software product companies where it is a mere 3%. Companies like Infosys, Wipro and TCS still just have about 5% of their total workforce working from offices.

In the metros, the number is 10%, but it’s 20% in the rest of India. The data also suggests that women employees are way ahead of their male counterparts in the effort to get back to office.
Deepesh Agarwal, CEO of WorkInSync, said the index indicates that the return-tooffice levels in the IT, ITeS and BPO sector could reach 50% of pre-Covid levels by May and up to 80% by September next year, with hopes hinging on the vaccine. “Since the phase-2 of re-opening, there has been a consistent upward shift in the way employees have returned to work and that trend will pick up pace in the next few months,” he said.
