The market is filled with work-from-home (WFH) job opportunities and remote work is no longer a temporary workaround or a pandemic measure. More organizations, especially tech companies are hiring employees for remote openings.
ImageKit, a SaaS start-up, has announced a ‘fully remote’ work policy. The start-up will let their employees choose where they want to work – either from their homes or the nearest co-working space. In case an employee chooses to work from a co-working space, the firm will compensate them for the expenses.
“Companies are built with people from diverse backgrounds, with varied ideas and different working styles. Something that works for me may not work for another employee. With more people preferring to work from remote locations, we decided that it would be ideal to adopt a remote-friendly, flexible policy, and setting up our internal processes around that,” Rahul Nanwani, co-founder and CEO, ImageKit, said.
The firm will provide a one-time home office setup allowance if any employee chooses to work from home. The start-up will also compensate for an industry-standard device of the employee’s choice to work on.
Other initiatives include mental health breaks, company meet-ups, no fixed working hours and no-questions asked paid leave.
