Work from Home Policy

IDrive recognizes that there may be circumstances when it would be more beneficial or flexible for employees to work from home. So we would like to introduce Work From Home (WFH) option for employees.

Working from home is totally dependent upon below criteria being fulfilled by employee:

  • Work From Home (WFH) option is allowed for ONE Day in a month.
  • Employee should take a prior approval (at least a one day in advance) of his/ her TL/Manager and HR to avail this option.
  • WFH is allowed for one person in a team at a time. (Note: 2 or more members of same team cannot avail WFH option on same day and TL should not sanction such request)
  • Employee should always be available on call and provide alternate contact number to the TL/Manager.
  • Employee has to put in mandatory 8 working hours.

Note: Company will not reimburse any expense occurred due to work from home.

There are certain elements that need to be considered before a WFH request is filed:

  • Eligibility of employee, if employee’s nature of job permits.
  • Need for teamwork with colleagues
  • Conditions of home or alternative place of work (noise, internet connection etc.)
  • Availability of necessary equipment or software
  • Cyber security and data privacy
  • Ability to work autonomously

Procedure:

  • To avail WFH option employee needs to send email to wfh@idrive.com and to TL/Manager. Only upon TL/Manager’s and HR’s approval employee can avail WFH.
  • Upon approval employee needs to contact Hardware team to enable WFH settings/ configuration. Please note that it is mandatory for employees to use WFH setting provided by hardware team to record his/her attendance.
  • End of the day employee should fill up the WFH form (available at https://idriveians.com/vpn/index.php/work-from-home-form) and send to wfh@idrive.com along with their Status report of that particular day. TL has to verify the same and confirm.
  • NOTE: If any employees do not use WFH setting while working from home, his/her attendance logs will not be recorded in our system and that day will be considered as a leave.
  • HR team will not consider WFH in record if we do not get form and status report with TL/Manager’s authorization.
  • At any time, this policy can be reviewed by IDrive, as and when changes are necessary as per organization requirements

ATTENDANCE

Attendance is routed through the Access Control Device, which is fixed at the main door of both the offices. All employees have to swipe in their ID cards when they enter the office and swipe out when they leave the office.

In case the employee forgets to get his/her access card, the employee has to make and entry in the register which is placed at the reception counter.

If the employee loses the access card, he should inform the Operations team immediately in order to retrieve a new access card and to block the existing card. The Access control system tracks all swipes, IN & OUT time spent in the work area and
in the pantry.

Employees are strictly prohibited from swiping in or out for another employee. Please note that your logs and entries are getting monitored.

If the employee fails to get the access card, they need to notify the HR Team. They can enter the details in register with security; in a month only ONE entry is allowed, 2 or more entries will be treated as absent.

All employees are requested to adhere the above guideline to avoid any disciplinary action.
