“Traffic just kills me!”
“I am half dead when I come back home from work.”
“How do I catch the train? It will take me 2 hours to get tot he station from work.”
“I can’t shift my home just because my company shifted the office out of the city.”
“How do I take care of some personal work if I go to office?”
“Friday night dinner a? Not possible da. I have to go to office”.
These are all the things that either our mind voice tells us or we tell others. The fact of the matter is that you and me spend more than 2 hours on the road every day commuting between office and home.
While some of us can switch jobs and some of might shift homes, is that the real solution to this problem? It is a given that IT companies or for that matter any large company is no longer going to build their office inside the city. So what is the way out?
I was a corporate employee for 16 long years shuttling back and forth between West Mambalam and Siruseri. This travel was one of the reasons that made me think beyond a corporate job. We loose so much of our productive time to traffic and travel. We arrive home half dead not having the energy to take care of things or even spend time with our kids.
We thought why not re-purpose GoFloaters for that corporate employee who wants to stay near home and work on those days of the week where traveling to office is not mandatory. This gave birth to our “Hot Desk on the Go” solution. With a few design changes to the platform we were able to roll this out quickly. We are in the pilot stage with a few startups that are using this service to give their employees the flexibility to work from anywhere without compromising on productivity.
If you are interested to be part of this pilot or want to leverage this service for your team / employees, write to us at [email protected].
