SPEC WFH amidst Corona Outbreak

The whole world is dealing with the shockwave of a global pandemic that has taken thousands of lives and put almost every life under threat. The devastating impact of virus has left industries in an utter turbulent time and forced to shut their operations excluding life-essential products and services.

While we are unable to estimate the loss it is causing and time it will end, businesses are prioritizing employees’ health by allowing them to work from home options regardless of the city, country, region across the world to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

SPEC INDIA, known for its people-first approach, taken a necessary step to go completely remote, hence, giving all employees WFH to ensure health and safety in this anxious and chaotic environment.

Coronavirus, COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease that has affected 187 countries and is continuously affecting many more in the upcoming days if serious cautions are not taken. The time and impact of COVID-19 are uncertain and that’s the reason we must break the chain of the outbreak by distancing ourselves from the world.

Amidst COVID-19 outbreak, employee health and safety remain our top priority and we ensure that by operating remotely. We must do everything we can to fight this invisible enemy that has shaken the world and taken hundreds and thousands of lives. While every employee is working from home, we are walking the extra mile to provide uninterrupted services to our clients, fulfilling our commitment to quality and assuring a secure code of conduct in the WFH system. We all are in this together and we will come out.
