We’re Taking Pause To Heal: Godrej Properties
Godrej Properties Ltd (GPL) has asked its employees to take time off to heal and spend time with family, amid a raging pandemic that continues to impact lives.
“As an organization, we are pressing a pause button and setting aside three days this week for our teams to recuperate emotionally. We have decided our teams will be on a complete break from Wednesday, 5th May plus the weekend from everything work-related,” GPL told employees. “The only way to sail through this pandemic is by helping one another with care and compassion.”
Mohit Malhotra, MD and CEO, Godrej Properties Ltd. elaborated on the initiative. “Ever since our employees started working remotely, we have rolled out mindful initiatives to ensure their general and mental well-being. The work from home burnout is real and the last thirteen months of Covid and the second wave have taken a toll on people; emotionally and mentally. As a company it is our responsibility to be with our employees and we understand that in tough times like these, everyone deserves a break. We introduced ‘Taking a Pause to Heal’ initiative where these three days starting 5th May plus the weekend will be a complete break from everything work-related. We would really like our employees to take this time off to rest, relax, heal and spend time with loved ones at home. This is applicable to close to 2000 permanent employees and ~600 contract employees working across all our locations in India. We have also proactively given a heads up to our customers also so that the sales and customer centricity teams can also take a break. Being a part of the Godrej Group, we are committed to the overall health and well-being of our employees. We will continue to support and stand by each other and sail through the pandemic together”
