Communicating frequently with employees and showing appreciation for their work are going to be big pluses in the case of those working from home, as per Premji’s tweet.
Back in October 2020, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella had shared tips on making work-from-home life easier. “You need to plan more and better if you are working from home,” said Nadella. While Rishad Premji’s tips are for the companies and bosses, Nadella’s were for anyone in a work-from-home lifestyle.
The Microsoft CEO stressed on planning your days well, taking breaks and setting time limits to avoid a burn out. He emphasised on keeping video meetings short and allowing some transition time between meetings. His third tip was to stay away from the phone as far as possible and switch off the notifications to prevent distractions.
