smallcase Announces WFH Policy; Employees To Come To Office For 15 Days Every 6 Months

Moreover, employees are eligible for a remote working allowance of INR 25,000. The new policy will be effective immediately


The pandemic has changed the course of daily life and today people, as well as businesses, are embracing the unprecedented in many different ways. It is necessary for every organisation to ensure that its work culture is balanced in favour of everybody associated with the organisation. Several companies made a high-speed switch to home offices and kitchen tables last year when COVID-19 forced widespread lockdowns around the world. As we return to normalcy, organisations are luring back employees into refitted offices, with freebies & sweet deals.

However, the leadership at smallcase, a leading capital markets-focused fintech company feels a significant new normal that many of us have experienced comes with flexibility in work hours and working from remote locations, something that provides a work-life balance, greater satisfaction and thus, better productivity.

Keeping the best interest of its employees in mind, while opening the premises for its fully vaccinated employees, smallcase has announced a 90% work from home option for all its employees. The staff will be mandated to come to the office only for 15 working days every 6 months, or a total of 30 working days every year. These 15 working days need not be consecutive.

Moreover, employees are eligible for a remote working allowance of INR 25,000. The new policy will be effective immediately.

Vasanth Kamath, CEO & Founder, smallcase says, "A company’s work culture is basically its overall personality. The type of company culture you nurture in your office has an integral role to play in your business’s success. It’s a combination of a variety of elements that create an intangible ecosystem where people can work to the best of their capabilities and creative skills. Value, ethics, expectations, goals, workflow, task management, collaboration, feedback, and time management are some of the most essential elements that come together to create a positive, productive ambiance where employees can make a mark on their performance. We are hoping this step will foster this new normalcy, and this is how it should be – employees first."

With organisations committed to making remote work more manageable for their employees, and the hybrid work models becoming the new normal, these arrangements can prove beneficial.
