Covid19 Leave Policy and WFH Policy – People First
Last month we declared Paid Period Leave policy for our female team members. We realized the need for the policy and hence we implemented that with an immediate effect. Today on 18th September 2020, we are announcing Covid19 Leave policy and WFH policy for our team members.
iVIPANAN is not just a company where people are employees. Every individual working here is a family to us. We work together to achieve a common goal – empowering maximum people and businesses for digital marketing.
Our people first policy keeps us thinking about the well-being of our team members. The current pandemic is not easy for companies and employees all across the globe.
Many companies are struggling to survive. Many people lost their jobs. We feel this is the toughest period for us, our team members, and their family members too.
Surrounded by pessimism and with economic downfall, today we are announcing the Work From Home policy and COVID19 Leave policy.
Covid19 Leave Policy:
Starting today, if any team member of iVIPANAN is found to be COVID19 positive, she or he will be given up to 14 days of paid quarantine. This leave is other than annual CL and SL.
The COVID19 leave starts from the day any team member is quarantined after being found to be corona-positive. The maximum 14 days of quarantine-paid leave that particular team member will be eligible to get.
This policy applies to all team members, including those who will be on probation at that time.
During these 14 days of the leave period, she or he will be getting a full salary. The pending CL/SL will be intact.
Half-Day Work from Home policy:
Since reopening our office after the lockdown, we have been working from home for the first half of the day (pre-lunch period).
We will work from home for the first half of the day (pre-lunch period) until December 31, 2020. It means our team members will be working from the office only after the lunch session (1.30 pm to 6.30 pm) until December 31, 2020.
In the morning session (9.30 a.m. to 1 p.m.), they will be working from home only until December 31, 2020.
Both of these policies are implemented with immediate effect. We believe in the safety of our team members. Mental well-being is very important, not only for our teammates but for their family members too.
The COVID19 quarantine period is the toughest time for both the patient and their family. We, as a company, should remain with our teammates and their families during such a difficult time.
We are unaware of any such 14-day COVID19 leave policy yet in Surat or Gujarat. If iVIPANAN becomes the first company to implement this, we expect other companies to come forward and implement the same.
