The coronavirus pandemic has led almost everyone to work from home. While the whole work from home process has mixed opinions, a new research from Lenovo has attempted to analyze certain patterns to understand the work preferences of Indians.
According to their findings, almost 84 percent of Indians think they could be better at their job if they had better technology skills (Thanks to Indian Education System).
This tells us the skill gap prevalent in the country, whose credit goes to traditional teaching methodologies and outdated curriculum.
The researchers asked participants about the most essential gadgets for working from home. Almost 87 percent of participants felt that laptops are essential for remote work.
Of the major laptop users, almost 43 percent of participants agreed that battery life is one of the major challenges that hinder remote work.
Meanwhile, 58 percent of participants who participated in the survey told that video conferencing platforms are essential, which doesn’t come as a surprise due to the rapid adoption of apps like Google Meet, Zoom, and even JioMeet.
As far as the capital to facilitate remote work is concerned, the cost of Indian professionals’ personal expenditure was the lowest among other nine countries at Rs.13,900.
On a global scale, almost 63 percent of the workforce felt more productive working from home when compared to office.(No Office Gossips)
Moreover, 52 percent of them are willing to continue working from home even after social distancing restrictions get lifted (We will submit the work by EOD).
The trend is even high when in India, where 74 percent preferred work from home over traditional office work.
“We believe that this new confidence in working remotely will have several Indians increasing their expectations for flexible, high performance PCs and gaming PC’s always-on services” said Rahul Agarwal, CEO and MD, Lenovo India.
