SBI commences Work-from-home option for employees

State Bank of India (SBI) has launching the facility of allowing its employees to ‘Work From Home’, says a report. The employees are required to use mobile communication devices to address any urgent requirement, which prevents them from being in the office. 

The bank said that it will use mobile computing technologies and retain continuous control of all connected devices centrally to ensure the safety and security of data and applications. Meticulously designed Management Information Systems (MIS) and dashboards will monitor the use of technology and services to allow improvement of the system. In a statement, the bank said that the step is expected to benefit employees, especially women. SBI also discussed plans of facilitating the option of undertaking cross-selling, marketing, customer-relationship management and social media management while working from home, to make the initiative comprehensive and effective, and increase employee productivity.
