Pernod Ricard India evolves to a hybrid workspace, gives employees the freedom to work from anywhere

After successfully adapting to the Work-From-Home (WFH) model for over a year, Pernod Ricard India has evolved to a Hybrid Working model by offering employees the flexibility to either work from home or office. Under its new ‘Work from Anywhere’ policy, the company is extending employees an option to work out of home, from offices of the company or at a co-working space, with all COVID-safety protocols in place.  

To implement the ‘Work from Anywhere’ model, Pernod Ricard India has initiated tie-ups in Delhi and Gurgaon to set up co-working spaces, and employees have the freedom to work from wherever they feel comfortable and safe. They can book their slots on the company’s dedicated online portal or using the mobile application. With the ease on COVID restrictions in India, the company has decided to open all its offices, and a decision to provide coworking spaces as an option is to help employees reduce long commute time and travel fatigue. 

For now, the company is starting with 25 percent employees at each location, and the decision to increase capacity will be based on a close monitoring of the COVID situation. Only vaccinated employees are encouraged to avail this service, and the final discretion lies with employees, as they can choose to continue working from home. Pernod Ricard has also been driving a campaign to vaccinate all employees, contract staff as well as their family members. 

Speaking about the new way of working, Shrikant Lonikar, Chief Human Resource Officer, Pernod Ricard India, said, “Our core value of “Conviviality” has been severely challenged during the pandemic, and amid these changing times, employees deserve flexibility in exercising their choice of workplace. We believe that the new hybrid working model will offer our colleagues the much-needed flexibility and convenience to overcome the work-from-home challenges, break the monotony, help them enjoy more convivial moments, and make the most of our resources to enhance work efficiency.”

Pernod Ricard India’s decision to adopt a hybrid model stems from its cognizance of the impact of prolonged remote working on its employees, wherein the lines between work and personal life continue to blur. The pivot to this way of working also comes from the fact that most employees are missing real-time bonding and socializing with their team members, and at Pernod Ricard India, conviviality is always upheld. 

Pernod Ricard India continues to prioritize employee’s mental wellbeing, with a heightened focus during the pandemic, helping employees stay mentally and emotionally resilient with digital fasting on alternate Wednesdays of the month, no meetings, mails or calls before 9 AM and after 6 PM, and dedicated Lunch hours between 12:30 PM to 2 PM -daily, with no meetings, mails or calls in between. The company has also partnered with 1to1Help.net to provide sustained and comprehensive mental and emotional care to employees and their families.
