With the ongoing effects that COVID-19 has brought to the world, many companies have shifted toward what is now considered “The World’s Largest Work from Home Experiment” and are trying to navigate the journey of a fully distributed workforce. At Cognizant Softvision, this new reality is nothing new to us – we’ve been mastering this for decades. Built on agile distributed team efficiency, crafted to drive positive business outcomes, globally, our Virtual Pods is in our DNA. In this Faces of Virtual Pods series, hear first hand stories and insights from the Virtual Pod members that are delivering and engineering software products – from all over the world.
“Perhaps it is because I used to work remotely at the beginning of my career or it is because I still have my best friends in different cities of the world, but working in a virtual environment was pretty much the same as going to the office, but without the commute part. Everyone is still the same and I can always reach out to people for chatting. The challenge of human interaction is there, but as long as we keep encouraging the connections, we keep the video on and we do our best in communicating, it can be overcome”.
