Since the pandemic started in March 2020, HR has been focused on enabling remote working, and working with our management to maintain high levels of employee engagement. These have been challenging times for everyone and we are all proud of what we have gone through an achieved, and look forward to further developing the hybrid working model that Linxon introduced as one of the pioneers in the market back in November 2020. It’s clear now that this model is the future of work.
Employee engagement and health is key to high performance at Linxon, we have supported our employees with wellbeing campaigns, helplines and employee surveys and we have acted on employee feedback. “No doubt Covid-19 has had a great impact on all of us,” Mohamed says. “What’s important is that you have enough support to cope with the new reality. A major part of my role during these difficult times is to find different ways to support our people as much as possible, reflecting what Linxon has already done on a wider scale.”
Like many people, Mohamed values the combination of mobile working while also having personal contact with his team. “I like working from home for many reasons; number one is the ability to turn commuting time into family time. But I can say that I’ve missed working from the office a great deal, especially meeting my colleagues. I believe a combination of working from and meeting and collaborating in the office is the most effective way of working.”
