Indian Employers Champion Remote Work, COVID-19 Vaccine Incentives

While COVID-19 infections in the United States and many European countries were steadily declining the past several months as vaccination efforts ramped up, India experienced its worst surge since the beginning of the pandemic.

During that surge, where case totals reached as high as 400,000 per day, WorldatWork conducted a survey to find how employers in India were responding to the virus then as well as throughout the pandemic. During the pandemic peak infection period, more than half of employees (58%) worked remotely. Organizations anticipate 39% of their workforce will continue to work remotely after the pandemic, while 71% of the 334 employers surveyed said they have made their remote work policy more flexible.

The “COVID-19Employer Response: India” survey also found that 66% of organizations are reimbursing employees for remote work expenses. While most information technology companies tend to reimburse the internet bill for their employees, overall, this was not a common practice pre-COVID.

Indian organizations were active in helping their employees receive a COVID-19 vaccine, as 84% are offering vaccines on-site or providing other resources to obtain a vaccine. As it relates to incentives, 71% of organizations said they were offering some form of one to their employees who receive the vaccine and 70% of those companies said they would sponsor or discount the cost of inoculation. Other incentives included:

  •          Paid leave benefits (41%)
  •          Cash reward (28%)
  •          Gift or gift card (28%)

Additionally, most organizations (79%) said they are providing hazard pay to essential category employees. Hazard pay isn’t a typical piece of rewards packages in India, so employers in the area were quick to implement it to support workers on the front lines during the pandemic.  

Organizations in India indicated that employee voice was very important as it related to a return to the office. Most (82%) employers said they will conduct an employee survey to assess their comfort level with returning to the workplace. Organizations are also relying on information from state/central government officials (60%), public health authorities (51%), health care officials/professionals (48%) and local corporations (38%) in determining the appropriate timeframe to return to work.
