Riya Siddhacharjee, DNI: If you face these issues and crave work-life balance, then we have some good news for you. Now, one can work from the nearby Pod. Yes, you heard us right!
As we worked from home for the past one and a half years due to the pandemic, we have realized that we are turning claustrophobic.
Many of us living in tiny houses with family becomes nearly impossible to concentrate during a webinar or any zoom session. It has become hard finding quiet corners in our homes for our office calls. No doubt, work from home and family hours co-exist and we can’t deny the fact.
If you face these issues and crave work-life balance, then we have some good news for you. Now, one can work from the nearby Pod. Yes, you heard us right!
These glass pods are designed workspace in residential areas rented on daily/hourly basis. Pre-existing office spaces have been turned out to working pods.
The question remains, is it affordable? Don’t worry it won’t charge more. It will cost you only Rs 30 for 90 minutes. There is also coffee and food available which you can pay for separately.
Speaking with a renowned news channel, Debasis Sen, Managing Director of West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (WBHIDCO), said, “Work from home is now the norm. However, many Indian homes are not suitable for this. The Work Pod allows a refreshing walking distance alternative in residential areas. We hope this will help a lot of people.”
The work pods will be available for the office workers from 13th August 2021. Initially, one will get space on a first-come, first-serve basis. Later, online booking will open up.
