How $15 billion Qualtrics used its own software to decide employees should come into offices 3 days a week post pandemic (XM) 2021/05/14 15:00:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Utah-based Qualtrics is the latest tech company to rethink where and how its employees will work post-pandemic — and the company used its own survey software to come to its final decision. Qualtrics — which currently has a market cap around $15 billion — had a very in-person, office-centric culture before the pandemic: 91% of employees came into one of its 28 offices full-time. However, it now plans to have a hybrid model going forward where employees are expected to come to the office about three days per week and can work remotely otherwise. Insider spoke to CEO Zig Serafin and Qualtrics chief people officer Julia Anas about how it decided on a hybrid work model and why it believes it strikes the best balance between in-person and remote benefits Putting its own "experience management" software to the test Qualtrics used its own software to decide how its workforce will be structured post-pandemic. The company bills itself as the creator of a category it calls "experience management": It essentially helps companies survey their own customers and employees to identify and manage the gaps between the experience they hope for and the one they're currently getting, and counts Microsoft and BMW among its customer base.

Staffing companies want 50% cut in proposed security deposit of Rs 1,000 per worker 2021/04/14 18:09:25 Economic Times India
Staffing firms have asked the government to reduce security deposit, as proposed in the Code on Occupational Safety, Health and Working Condition, per worker by half to Rs 500 while capping it at Rs 1 crore for firms with large numbers of employees, citing blockage of working capital of firms.The move to impose a security deposit of Rs 1,000 per worker, as proposed in the Code, will cost the staffing firms heavily and will defeat the purpose of a national licence, the staffing firms have said.For big staffing firms such as Quess Corp or TeamLease Services, this would be a huge hit if they go for a national licence. Quess Corp has over 300,000 employees while TeamLease has over 200,000 employees under its fold.Currently, staffing firms have to apply for state-wise licences for every operation across India and the security deposit ranges from Rs 90 to Rs 500 per worker depending on the state. However, the Code on Occupational Safety, Health and Working Condition provides for a national licence with security deposit at Rs 1,000 per worker. 82071985This is a one-time deposit and will be refunded when the contractor surrenders the licence or applies for a new one.

A Zoho exec explains the benefits of staying private even as the productivity firm competes against public giants like Atlassian and ServiceNow 2021/03/07 15:30:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement The 25-year-old productivity tool company Zoho believes that staying private has been one of the keys to its success — and doesn't have any ambitions for an IPO. Zoho offers a suite of productivity and business applications and competes against public software giants like $57 billion market cap Atlassian and $95 billion market cap ServiceNow . Unlike those competitors, which raised $522 million and $269.28 million from investors, respectively, before going public, Zoho has never taken outside investment. That strategy has meant that it's always needed a "strict focus" on profitability, Zoho chief strategy officer Vijay Sundaram told Insider, but also that it has the freedom to take smart risks. "We make investments that might not pay off in the next five years, and we really don't care," Sundaram said. "That's hard to do when under the binoculars of Wall Street." Most unconventionally, Zoho has invested in land for employee-managed organic farm in Texas . "When COVID-19 hit, we saw how employee needs were changing and the need for collaboration and safe socialization was at an all-time high, so we invested in a working farm 40 minutes outside of Austin, where employees can meet to get their hands dirty and partake in harvesting crops, bring their children and work, if they choose," Sundaram said. "We've seen great success with this farm with employees being more engaged and happy and feeling like part of a community, even when most of the world is still remote." Wall Street's focus on quarterly results can lead to actions that are "counterproductive," Sundaram says.
